Artist: Pablo Zuazo
Song: The Wolfman (K2T Remix)
Based: Sao Paulo
Stands out: Beat
Part of the refreshing and fruitful new Brazilian musical scene, pianist and composer Pablo Zuazo is inspired by the different music textures of bossa nova, jazz, samba, hip hop and electronic music. The final result is a tropical nu jazz with roots in the North and Northeast from Brazil as contemporary as the innovative nights of Sao Paulo, a city the artist has chosen to live for almost 20 years.
In 2018, Pablo releases his first instrumental tracks, “Monkey Nu Jazz” and “The Wolfman”, which already featured electronic music playlists overseas. From the traditional Amazon serestas to São Paulo, Pablo learned to pl
ay piano following great pianists such as Dick Farney, Nat King Cole and Tom Jobim. The pop references came from afternoons watching hip hop clips from Beastie Boys and A Tribe Callled Quest on MTV.
The beats combined with techniques and metrics of classical music evolved into a passionate study and the exploration of the piano as a creative base. Remixed by French producer K2T, from London, “The Wolfman” came first as a beat but it was amplified by the artist’s need to explore different creative platforms as a multi-instrumentalist and show that there are no boundaries for music. “My poetry is urban, it’s everyday philosophy, it’s global, it’s about all the feelings that unite us,” he says.
He is currently working in his debut album as a singer and songwriter.
