Born in Berlin and Rio de Janeiro, “Nascentes” is the first solo project by flutist, composer and arranger Mariana Zwarg. 18 years into her career, the album is the result of the work she has been developing for almost four years with her group “Mariana Zwarg Sexteto Universal”. The project started in 2016, when Mariana was invited by a Spanish music festival to direct and organize an entire concert dedicated to Hermeto Pascoal. The band was formed by musicians from different parts of the world. After a 20-day European tour that year, they talked about the group's deep affinity with Mariana and “Universal Music”, and decided to continue the project. Since then, there have been six European and two Brazilian tours playing at jazz festivals, folk music festivals, theaters, jazz clubs and music schools in Germany, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Brazil and France.
