Eduardo Cardinho 'Not far from paradise'

Jazzemmonserrate 240906 1900 Eduardo Cardinho


Park of Monserrate


6 September 2024


7 pm



Eduardo Cardinho, a vibraphonist and composer based in Porto, presents his latest project ‘Not Far From Paradise,’ which resulted in the creation of an album released in 2024 by the prestigious Barcelona label Fresh Sound. Standing out as one of the most creative vibraphonists of his generation, and known for his unique rhythm and sound, over the years Cardinho has gradually developed his own voice on the vibraphone and invited some of the best musicians of the new generation of Portuguese jazz to participate in this project. His incessant quest for new sounds has culminated in a novel approach to composing new tracks, with Eduardo Cardinho's vibraphone and José Diogo Martins' synthesisers complementing each other in a panoply of sound possibilities, incorporating João Mortágua's alto saxophone with effects and a rhythm section comprising Diogo Alexandre on drums, Frederico Heliodoro on electric bass and Iuri Oliveira on percussions.
