ELOÁ GONÇALVES TRIO
In collaboration with Luis Oliveira (drums, Brazil) and Tobias Steinrück (bass, Austria), the trio led by the Brazilian pianist/composer Eloá Gonçalves presents a blend of sonorities that walks between the freedom of jazz, some references in classical music and Brazilian music.
The trio is releasing its debut album “Casa”, under the Austrian label Alessa Records, supported by the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz and the city of Graz - Austria.
Eloá Gonçalves Trio has been performing both in her homeland Brazil, where she was invited to perform at Savassi Jazz Festival 2017 (Belo Horizonte/MG) on the stage "Women creating music", a partnership between the festival and "Women creating collective".
Also in Austria, the trio has been performing in jazz festivals such as Jazzwerkstatt Graz 2019, and Steyr Jazz Festival 2020.
In September 2020 they have been chosen as finalists of the Central European Jazz Showcase, which will take place in June 2021, in the Czech Republic.

" I think that everyone has a way of feeling ´at home´. That could be a place, someone´s company, a smell or a taste. For most of my life making music has been what makes me feel that way. It´s through music that I've had the opportunity to meet people, places, discover new flavours, smells, colours and to know myself, not only as a musician but as a human being. I hope that you, just like me, through the music you´ll listen here, also feel at home".
