A Brazilian dive into contemporary jazz. DANI & DEBORA GURGEL QUARTETO – or DDG4 – bring a mix of traditional and modern rhythms, elaborated harmonies and constant improvisation. An inseparable union between instrumental music and carefully written words, filled with the delight of their long-established musical intimacy and the serendipity of constant interaction amongst themselves and with the audience.
Dani & Debora have recently released educational album and book collection, which includes full sheet music transcriptions and play-along versions of the album.
The year 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of DDG4, and is commemorated with DDG4+, an album in which Dani Gurgel, Debora Gurgel, Thiago Big Rabello and Sidiel Vieira invite some of the most talented Brazilian instrumentalists to participate in some of DDG4’s most iconic songs picked from various of their 7 previous albums. We can listen to DDG4 plus Hamilton de Holanda (10-string mandolin), Mestrinho (accordion), Sidmar Vieira (trumpet), Maiara Moraes (flute) and Jorginho Neto (trombone), all recorded live at the Da Pá Virada studios.
