Elis & Catherine's love of dialogue between the
traditional and the modern is revealed in their compositions, their choice of
repertoire, and their unconventional arranging. Elis & Catherine pay tribute
to the great composers and lyricists of Brazil, with touches of North and South
American folk music, European dance music and African rhythms, elegantly
rendered on bowed, plucked and vocal strings.
German-born Elis sings and plays guitar, and London-born Catherine plays
cello. The unique voice of these two versatile musicians arose while exploring
their shared passion for Brazilian music, in particular choro and MPB.
Their new album "Um Gosto de Sol" (A Taste of Sun) includes original compositions and music of Milton
Nascimento, Chico Buarque, Ernesto Nazareth, Tom Jobim, and Guinga.
