Biography - GIULIANO PEREIRA

Like many contemporary improvising musicians, saxophonist Giuliano Pereira is the archetypal global citizen. He left his native Brazil in the late 90s, resided in New York and Madrid before finally settling in London in 2009. He has also performed in Canada, Portugal, Angola, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bulgaria, Bahrain and Sweden.

In Brazil, he trained at the Carlos de Campos de Tatui Conservatoire where his tutors included Claudio Leal [harmony] and David Richards [Improvisation]. In addition to this formal musical education, Pereira began to perform and record studio sessions, exploring and developing his own style. In 1997 he moved to in New York where he pursued intensive studies with the saxophone virtuoso Dave Liebman.

After returning to Brazil where he continued to play with and arrange for numerous jazz artists, Pereira headed to Europe, eager for a change of scene. He settled in Madrid in 2007 and began collaborating with acclaimed artists such as The Spanish National Jazz Orchestra and Jorge Pardo, known first and foremost for his work with flamenco legend Paco De Lucia and jazz great Chick Corea.

Hailing from a musical family in Brazil, Pereira has devoted himself to creating his own unique compositional signature and a style of performance that reflects a fusion of global influences, from western jazz to traditional Brazilian folk music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
