Welcome to Balakumbala Voice & Bass

Mauro Martins  &  Viviane de Farias                                                    

" A fulminant duo ...  An economical setting and yet, what musical richness! " BADISCHE NEWS

"... funky samba, sensual bossa, powerful explosions and almost inaudible sound experiments. Spectacular scats and total voice control." JAZZ THING

Balakumbala's sound has a very strong energy.  Groove and heat move us with original arrangements. Congratulations on your beautiful work! "  MARCO LOBO, brazilian percussionist

"... a characterful voice and an enormously versatile string instrument deliver an original and thrilling intimate overview of brazilian music with a complete new perspective". JAZZTHING


" Viviane de Farias - Ambassadress of bossa in Germany. " JAZZTHETIK

" The music we love will continue."  TANIA MARIA

" Bassist Mauro drückt wieder dermassen virtuos auf die Tube dass zumindest die Instrumental-Kollegen auf die Stühlen stehen werden und alle anderen nach Luft schnappen. Tolle Musiker und ein intesives Duo." GITARRE UND BASS 

" Le meilleur de la musique brésilienne." BLUE NOTE, Paris

"Dieses Duo ist eine Art Zaubermaschine: Man tut wenig hinein und bekommt ein Vielfaches heraus. Stets finden sie etwas Neues ... Martins E-Bass ersetzt lässig ein Orchester, während Farias alle Register beim Gesang zieht. Das ist Performance zum Hören. Stark!" Nordbayern

BALAKUMBALA is a breathtaking tête-à-tête which adds to contemporary Brazilian music a thoroughly new and captivating perspective, stripped down to the extraordinary talent of Viviane de Farias and Mauro Martins.

The daring journey of VOICE & BASS has rarely been undertaken in Brazilian music. Although there are so many excellent singers and also a host of highly skilled bass players, this unusual teaming up is hardly to be found...
