SanfoNYa Brasileira

SanfoNYa Brasileira



“Sanfona” being a word in Brazil for accordion, and NYC being the home of these three Brazilian

musicians, who as a trio create a collective symphony.

Branching out and beyond the accordion traditions of Brazil- choro, forró and frevo– this trio combines their passions of Brazilian and American jazz, improvisation and arranging, while featuring original compositions of each member.

An unusual musical combination and unexpected friendship such as this is the kind of thing that only happens in New York, where each person comes far from their home to contribute to the melting pot- and sometimes finds themselves sending something new to taste back home.


Vitor Gonçalves- accordion

Eduardo Belo- upright bass

Vanderlei Pereira- drums
