In the album Desvelando Mares (Unveiling Seas), the Bianca Gismonti Trio is joined by a number of guests as they perform music from around the world.  Including compositions that feature the music of Argentina, Brazil, Africa, North America, Japan, Armenia, India, Portugal, Germany and Hungary.

Biana Gismonti tells us “As a descendant from both a family and country of mixed origins, I have always admired the richness that such blend produces. I have always been a searcher of union, of unity in diversity; always rooted in my Brazilian soil.

Julio Falavigna and Antonio Porto have given me hands and together we’ve been threading various territories. Their own stories have brought me new horizons, so my Brazilian heart could feel many of the different saps that were already pulsating inside this composing tree of mine. I’ve let myself out to navigate onto faraway and primordial lands.

Gratitude came in the form of music: “Salteo” inspired by many Argentinian composers; “Ostinatos” in my constant minimalist reference of North American Steve Reich; “Feitiço” in the fundamental African matisses; “Desvelando mares” on the profound creation of Tunisian Dhafer Youssef and the feminine vigor of Japanese Hiromi; “Piano Station” in the polyrhythmic and oriental freedom of Armenian Tigran Hamasyan; “Aonde planam os pássaros” by the sublime elements of Indian classical music; “Majo” in the oneness of two Portuguese, Mario Laginha and Maria João; “Ventos do Sul” by the lyric, cinematographic lightness of Japanese Joe Hisaishi and “Celestial sphere” in the eternal fountain of dreams and emotions from ECM and the visionary German Manfred Eicher.

This navigation has traveled as a trio to Budapest and also to many other places around the world, through the special guests of this album. And the heart has recognized itself as transatlantic, unveiling seas, yet just like the tree, maintaining its eternal root and original harbor.”

Press reviews

World Music Report

The composer and pianist describes the impulses from whence these songs sprung in her pithy liner notes. But she needn’t have to; the works themselves present all of the beautiful stories and paint vivid pictures that they need to in order for us to be swept away on a kind of epic musical odyssey with Miss Gismonti, bassist Antonio Porto, drummer Julio Falavigna and the many other musicians who join her and the core trio on this journey which, in keeping with their impulses reference the metaphor of a tumbling sea being slowly revealed one song at a time.
