The irrepressible spirit of Brazil comes cascading forth when Ricardo Herz picks up his fiddle. Like the mandolin virtuoso Hamilton De Holanda, he’s created a dramatic new frame for his instrument that embraces the whole spectrum of Brazilian music. His debut performance at Bello Bar, Dublin will be the final date in a European tour, bringing his energetic repertoire to the banks of the canal.

Herz is at home with bossa, samba and baile funk, the grooves that dominate the teeming cities of Rio and his native Sao Paolo, but he also draws deep on it less celebrated traditions, like the rootsy rabeca fiddle tradition, found in the forro music from Bahia in the northeast.

He spent a decade in Paris where he was a where he was a protégé of the great French violinist Didier Lockwood, and that deep immersion in jazz brings some dramatic improvisations into his freewheeling approach. These days he’s back in Brazil, performing with two outstanding Sao Paolo musicians in guitarist Michi Ruzitschka and percussionist Pedro Ito; a small group, but as so often with great Brazilian musicians, it’s so much more than the sum of its parts, as collectively they range across grooves and styles with a casual brilliance.

Support is by Dublin band Phisqa, an international fivesome who explore the richness of Afro-Peruvian and Andean music with the jazz tradition as their foundation.
