Samba & Jazz

Synopsis: Samba & Jazz‘ documentary is a feature film that draws a parallel between these two rhythms and cultures, in a versatile and unpretentious approach, looking for the synergy between the two cities in which they are most present: Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and New Orleans (United States). Directed by Jefferson Mello, author of the book ‘The Ways of Jazz’, the film portrays, through unusual situations, the authentic artistic expression of these people, that although separated by geographic boundaries, share a common feeling: a passion for music and for the popular manifestations that evolves the universes of Samba and Jazz.
