Reinaldo Brahn and Jim Brock

Reinaldo Brahn and Jim Brock

Born in Belo Horizonte (Beautiful Horizon), the third largest city in Brazil.
Reinaldo Brahn picked up his brother's guitar at age 14, curiously strummed its chords,
and the musician within him immediately emerged. He taught himself traditional Musica Minhera,
the rhythms of his native state Minas Gerais. Gaining experience playing and singing at festivals,
bars and restaurants, he worked with the renowned Brazilian vocal group Soul Makube before embarking on a solo career. Reinaldo's experiences and collaboration with other musicians created
his signature style which infuses classic Brazilian rhythms-Samba and Bossa Nova - with Funk and Jazz. In 2000 he recorded a CD with WEB BRASIL, in 2004 a collaborative CD entitled "Ao Vivo no Tocos", and in 2009 his first solo CD - "A Procura da Razao acoustic".

Reinaldo toured his original music throughout Brazil, and then brought his artistry to the United States. Arriving in Charlotte, North Carolina, in October 2007, he quickly introduced his Brazilian roots to the local scene. He creatively applies robust Brazilian style to popular American music with
a truly inspiring result. Reinaldo's specialties include singing and playing authentic Brazilian music, including Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB) and classic Sambas, as well as performing American pop
songs with a strong Brazilian influence. Veteran percussionist and producer Jim Brock refers to Reinaldo Brahn as "the new voice of Brazil".
