But it was at a roda de choro (the equivalent of a jam session) that the Franco-Brazilian members of the group Ressaca met. Their aim is to introduce you to one of Brazil's oldest musical traditions, with a repertoire of rearranged classics and original compositions.

>5.00/6.30pm - Jeanne Michard Latin jazz 5tet "Songes transatlantiques
Jeanne Michard: tenor saxophone, Clément Simon: piano, Natascha Rogers: percussion, Pedro Barrios: percussion, Maurizio Congui: double bass
Following three trips to Latin America, Cuba and New York, and encounters in various projects, Jeanne Michard decided to set up her own band and devise a repertoire in keeping with her primary influences: jazz, Latin and Afro-Cuban music. Her compositions blend traditional rhythms with the cadences and phrasing attributed to the bebop jazz of the '40s.
The idea is to create original music that follows in the footsteps of Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie and his work with percussionist Chano Pozo, Orlando Maraca with his album 'Afro-cuban jazz project', Julien Lourau with 'The Rise' and Abraham Mansfaroll and his album 'Dizzy el afrocubano'. She has teamed up with pianist Clément Simon, double bassist Maurizio Congiu and percussionists Natascha Rogers and Pedro Barrios for her debut album, 'Songes transatlantiques', in which she revisits her travels through a musical dialogue between percussion and harmonies reminiscent of traditional jazz.
This particular groove, brilliantly led by the duo of percussionists, gives rhythm to the cadences of the piano and double bass and the melodies of the tenor saxophone. Melodies that tell stories, daydreams... dreams.
