Latin MusicBorn in Pernambuco, Brazil, Sander Pinheiro, a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, has become one of the best interpreters of Brazilian jazz worldwide. Fusing the Brazilian sound with American music, he has delighted audiences in Brazil and the US with his captivating, unique sound.
Since childhood, music has always been a part of Sander’s life. His interest in music and the arts grew over the years and really took off when he moved from Recife to São Paulo, Brazil as a teenager. Sander began his career with gospel music like most of the great interpreters of “soul” music. His move to Atlanta nearly 10 years ago was motivated by a professional invitation to develop activities related to gospel music. Over the years, he has had opportunities to sing at various music festivals and jazz clubs and split with renowned artists in New York, New Orleans, Miami, Helen, and Athens, among others.
Names like Milton Nascimento, Rosa Passos, Luiz Gonzaga, Tom Jobim, Djavan, Ed Motta, George Benson and Al Jarreau are some of the great musical references that supported the construction of Sander’s sophisticated and diverse music. Mixing jazz, funk, and Samba, Sander’s stage show is considered one of the most beautiful representations of Brazilian music.
