We jammed with a few of the students at the studio in the music school yesterday all morning and afternoon! It was an incredible amount of fun. We played a lot of jazz tunes that we knew and then a bunch of Brazilian tunes, which were really cool! I like their music a lot. Most of it’s honestly a lot prettier than a lot of the stuff we play in the US. And all the students were awesome players. It would be nerve-racking except that they’re so cool about everything. There isn’t really any kind of competitiveness at all here, so they’re just as happy to be making music with anybody. It’s really a great environment with the people there. The facilities are garbage compared to UofL, but it doesn’t make a bit of difference I think. I sounded really good on some tunes and really bad on some tunes, but it was totally cool all the same. One of the drummers here, named Renan (Henan is how you’d say it) is a really nice guy. He invited us to come play yesterday. I think we’ll be hanging out with him a lot. And there’s a jazz festival in Brasilia tomorrow and Sunday, so it should be a lot of fun!
