Acclaimed Brazilian guitarist Flavio Silva brings his formidable quartet featuring pianist Edsel Gomez to Zinc on Monday, August 8. He’s supported by bassist Alex Apolo Ayla and drummer E.J. Strickland.

Flavio Silva is a musician who is part of a new generation of Brazilian composers and instrumentalists that has been breaking through the music scene of different places, such as Brazil, The Netherlands, and most recently, New York. The guitarist studied with some of the best musicians in Brazil and all over the world, such as Michel Leme, Alexandre Mihanovich, Djalma Lima, Lage Lund, Adam Rogers, and Ed Verhoeff, among others.

Flavio has shared the stage with some highly skilled musicians such as Antonio Hart, Bruce Williams, Seamus Blake, Victor Wooten, Jamal Thomas, Ben Williams, Elijah Jamal Balbed, Munir Hossn, Cuca Teixeira, Sandro Haick, Thiago Espirito Santo, among others. Flavio also performed in some of the best festivals in Europe including the North Sea Jazz Festival(The Netherlands), Langnau Jazz Nights(Switzerland), Koektebel Jazz Party(Ukraine), Gronau Jazz Festival(Germany), and Delft Jazz Festival(The Netherlands).

In 2019, together with Pat Bianchi(Organ), E.J. Strickland(drums), and Corey Wallace (trombone), Flavio started a new project, playing original compositions and arrangements by all the members of the group, mixing the jazz tradition with other cultures such as Brazilian, African, and Fusion.
