Andre Togni

Drummer, composer, and music producer André Togni has a jazz background and researches Brazilian popular culture for a long time. He won the Tim Award 2005 as a music producer, and percussionist for the “Casa de Farinha Group”, and has participated in several festivals in Brazil, the United States, and Europe. With influences from African and Oriental rhythms, he went even deeper into the music that always inspired him: jazz, and in 2010 released his 1st album entitled “Lugar de Sal”, with a modern language emphasizing the classic formation of the trio. “... it has a lightness but at the same time experiencing rhythmic and harmonic tensions...” “Lugar de Sal” makes a reinterpretation of contemporary jazz with rhythms of Brazilian popular culture with a focused approach in which the main voice passes from one instrument to another as a three-way dialogue, it can sound grand or introspective, dramatic or playful.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
