Os Alquimistas
Os Alquimistas
Os Alquimistas (ATX) began as a collaboration between Frederico Geib (Ghandaia) and Michael Longoria (Terremoto) in late 2009 in Austin, TX, a city declared as the 'Live Music Capital' of the United States.

Their transcendental sound reverberated in 'Ancestrais', the debut album released in the Summer/ 2011. Sudden as a tidal wave, the band has attracted worldwide excitement for their musical explorations, fantastic songwriting and vivid live shows.

“Boldly crafting new sounds while celebrating ancient rhythmic traditions” raves WBEAT! while AGENCIA LA REFORMA-MX reckoned “a new branch in Brazilian soul music has sprouted”.

The group consists of prolific musicians with a wide range of musical influences and socio-ethnic backgrounds. Together they accumulate an acclaimed roster of tours and performances (i.e. San Jose Jazz Festival, ACL Fest, SXSW, Monterrey Jazz, Dolores del Rio International, sharing the stage with artists of the highest caliber (Jair Oliveira, Willie Nelson, Ozomatli, Grupo Fantasma and many others) while preparing for upcoming tours in the USA and Europe.

Os Alquimistas have decisively embarked on a transmutation of love through the universal soul of music. Melodies both lyrical and haunting interact with flawless percussive landscapes in a bed of Brazilian guitar chords, funky bass lines, electric piano, electronic ambiance and berimbaus to create music that is simply irresistible and universal! A river that flows through Samba, Rock, Soul, Reggae, Funk, Afropop, Jazz… A river of music
Jai Malano
Jai Malano
“Whiskey & Blues” is the quintessential phrase used to describe Jai Malano. Imagine a voice as vast and wide as Texas, with a presence as bold and sensuous as the exotic and swampy waters of northern Florida and Louisiana. Hailing now from the ’Live Music Capital of The World’, the sound of Jai Malano is raw, authentic and relevant to the world of Rhythm and Blues. Be it her blend of storytelling, her gritty interpretations, or the strength of her vocality; you’re guaranteed to be blown away from start to finish. Her debut solo album entitled ‘Rocket Girl’—available for download on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal—was released in 2015 and consists of eight original tunes as well as works by Big Joe Tex and Ike Turner. Over the years Jai Malano has maintained an Austin residency with the legendary C-Boys Heart & Soul, while also traveling around Brazil, England, France, Germany, Australia, and the United States. Previous recordings available on Amazon includes 'Shuck and Jive’, and 'Talk to Me’.
