Listen to this incredible voice, feel this infectious energy, love the songs, admire the production! Ed Motta is obviously more than "just" a Grammy-nominated musician, singer, songwriter, entertainer and connoisseur; the "Colossus of Rio" is a force of nature. Already an idol in his native Brazil, somewhere between MPB, Soul, Funk, Rock, and Jazz (and also a recognized wine, beer and tea expert!), the 41-year-old has been an insiders’ tip in Europe for some years now – via enthusiastic essays, radio broadcasts from fans like Gilles Peterson, guest appearances with the likes of Roy Ayers, 4 Hero, Seu Jorge, Incognito, Bo Diddley and Ryuichi Sakamoto and a few solo concerts, such as at the North Sea Jazz Festival.
