Airto Moreira

Born in Brazil and a musical spiritual healer by faith, Airto Moreira is widely hailed as the world’s greatest percussionist. Having collected and mastered over one hundred and twenty percussion instruments Airto has channelled his remarkable rhythmic diversity into a volcanic, full bodied sound fuelled by the enigmatic energy of experience and ignited by instrumental improvisation. For 25 years he has consistently topped the percussion category of readers and critics polls in such magazines as Downbeat, Jazz Times, and Modern Drummer. With 18 solo albums under his belt and an enormous array of collaborations with various virtuosos such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Simon, Carlos Santana and Mickey Hart – to name but a few - Airto has been changing the face of modern jazz worldwide. www.airto.com
