Gondwana is the album of the musician and composer Alegre Corrêa. Result of an intense work of composition and arrangements, Gondwana merges different sounds to connect Brazil, Africa and Europe. The diversity presented in the album comes from the experience and from these three continents that are connected by the musicians of the group. From Africa, Alune Wade (bass/vocal) brings the tribal melodies, complexity and beauty of African rhythms. From Europe, Gerald Preinfalk (sax/clarinet) brings elements from different eras of the classical music. From South America, Alegre Corrêa, Fagner Wesley (piano), Gabriel Grossi (harmonica) and Matheus Jardim (drums) bring the diversity of Brazil, a cosmopolitan and popular sound.
Alegre Corrêa is a Brazilian musician and composer with a solid international career. He lived in Vienna for over 20 years, where he launched his work and had the opportunity to play alongside great music legends, such as Joe Zawinul – founder of Weather Report, and Vienna Art Orchestra – one of the most important European jazz orchestras. He also had received awards such as the Hans Koeller Prize – once for best album of the year and once for best musician of the year, and the Grammy Awards for the 75th album by Zawinul & The Syndicate for best performance in Contemporary Jazz.
