Born and raised in Cruz do Espírito Santo, interior of Paraíba and currently living in São Paulo, also in Brazil, Salomão Soares is a virtuoso pianist, arranger and composer. He has stood out as one of the great revelations of the new generation of Brazilian instrumentalists, sharing the stage with important names in Brazilian music such as Hermeto Pascoal, Toninho Horta, Hamilton de Holanda, Leny Andrade, Filó Machado, Renato Braz, Mônica Salmasso, Itiberê Zwarg, Arismar do Espírito Santo, Toninho Ferragutti (with whom he recorded a duo album), among many others.
He won the Mimo Instrumental Award 2017, was a finalist in the Piano Competition at the Montreaux Festival 2017, Switzerland, and winner of the New Talents Award at the Savassi Festival 2018, in Belo Horizonte. He has participated in several festivals and tours around the world, as recently in Spain and Portugal, alongside the singer Vanessa Moreno, or in Uruguay and Brazil, as for example at SESC Jazz, one of the best known jazz festivals in Latin America, with his trio and also as a special guest of Hermeto Pascoal.
At Misty Fest, the pianist, composer and arranger presents live his first solo album – Interior. With tributes, references and important influences in his formation as a human being and as a musician, Salomão faced this work as a real challenge: “This work is like a conversation with my inner self, a search and also a visit in all my musical history”, says the musician from Paraíba. He adds, “I think that the solo for the pianist is the purest and most simple thing, it is like going up completely naked to play, without external interferences, so it will always be challenging and new.”
Without a doubt, a show not to be missed.
