Following her Grammy-winning album Made in Brazil, the charismatic pianist and singer Eliane Elias plays a rare London concert with a brand new album Dance of Time blending her Brazilian roots and sensuous, alluring voice with trademark, dynamic instrumental skills.
Celebrating the centenary of samba – ‘the most authentic and contagious dance rhythm of Brazil’ – Elias’ band, featuring virtuoso bassist Marc Johnson, create an atmosphere that is magnetic, energising and hugely entertaining.
‘Eliane Elias is of a generation of aggressive pianists who attack music like a lioness attacking its prey, at the same time expressing a tenderness within the core of her passion that at times has brought me to tears.’(Herbie Hancock)
