Flapjack's Pancake Shack - 18/VI/2016

On the heels of its recent Appalachian Cabin Tour and its encounters with the colourful crowds that jigged and yawped to its tunes in hunter-trapper, coonskin-shaking, pheasant-wishbone-breaking fashion, Florquestra ends its tour fittingly, articulating tonight's musical one-night-stand of Brazilian palpations at Flapjack’s cozy headquarters of woody hues: “Brazilian Dreams in Lumberjack Jeans (Cabin Melodies from Rio to Bahia and Bunk-Bed Beats for John and Maria)” — an evening of melody, harmony, rhythm and rhyme to kiln in the heat of the heart and take home with a partner to the sawmill where the pillows and the sheets are smooth and sappy.

Featuring Regina Assunta Gomes Teixeira (vocals, percussion), Silvio Módolo (bass, cavaquinho, vocals) and Leonard Constant (guitar, vocals).

Mercury Lounge - 11/VI/2016



Le 11 juin 2016 au Mercury Lounge ? — Soirée que le Florquestra, dans une géométrie revue et augmentée, consacrera exclusivement au FORRÓ !

Le forró ? — Accordéon,
zabumba (gros tambour), triangle, parfois le pandeiro (et parfois même quelques gentils intrus comme la guitare, le cavaco, la basse...) sont les principaux protagonistes instrumentaux de cette musique nordestine (entendre du nord-est brésilien) qui sent bon la cachaça, la terre fissurée par un soleil abrasif et la nuque transpirée d'une irrésistible morena. Comme la plupart des genres musicaux brésiliens, le forró est né d'une confluence d'éléments culturels amérindiens, africains et européens. L'origine du mot lui-même est encore trouble mais, selon l'hypothèse la plus circulée, « forró » serait une pittoresque déformation de l'anglais « for all ». Au XIXième siècle, alors que le réseau ferroviaire de la Great Western Railroad étendait peu à peu ses cicatrices sur la carte de l'État nordestin du Pernambouc, les Anglais y organisaient des bals populaires qu'ils annonçaient, par affiche ou écriteau, comme étant « For All » (pour tous). Ces bals furent le melting-pot musical où naquirent le forró et la danse du même nom, sur un rythme nerveux et délicieusement boîteux, évoquant à la fois les toussotements des locomotives emphysémateuses de la Great Western Railroad et les percussions cardiaques des romances nordestines contrariées par la trahison, la fuite, l'alcool, l'indigence... et toutes les autres formes de feu qui alimentent à ce jour le brasier mythologique de ces contrées brésiliennes où le peuple du sertão (région du nord-est dévorée par la sécheresse) cherche infatigablement le rire dans une boule de cristal pleine de larmes.

Distribution : Regina Gomes Teixeira (chant, zabumba & autres percussions), Silvio Módolo (accordéon, chant), Paulo Collier (triangle), Sandro Ferreira (basse, chant), Léonard Constant (guitare, chant), Angel Araos (batterie).

Featuring Regina Assunta Gomes Teixeira (vocals, percussion), Silvio Módolo (bass, cavaquinho, vocals), Leonard Constant (guitar, vocals)… and a surprise guest on percussion.

Ottawa Chamberfest — Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts - 07/08/2013

Présentation officielle / Official presentation :

Florquestra presents “Flortografia”, the companion show to its very first discographic incarnation, imagined, interpreted, arranged, recorded (in Canada and Brazil) by Florquestra and its talented collaborators (Evandro Gracelli, Fernando Acosta, René Gely, Alexandre Cunha, Jasmin Lalande, Paul Doyle, Gabriel Estrela Pinto and Projeto Coisa Fina). “Flortografia” constitutes a small catalogue of repertorial veins Florquestra has been tapping for some time: Brazilian harmonic refinement, the fever of the samba, the sensuality of the bossa nova, the languors of the xote, the tease and twists of the hiccuped forró, the delicate seismics of the chorinho, the magmatic quiver of Andean percussion, the Montmartrian gab of yestercentury squeezeboxes, the melancholy cheekiness of Balkan brass, the blue embrace of jazz... and other manners of earth, water and light that find their way into a workshop full of laughing, weeping, talkative and dancey instruments used to produce Florquestra’s handmade music.

Florquestra is an exciting band composed of musicians from Brazil, Chile, Romania and Canada. Between Brazilian rhythms and Parisian rhymes, Florquestra applies its very own brand of world-jazz to original compositions as well as to the work of revered bards such as Canada’s Leonard Cohen and France’s greatest chanson poet, Georges Brassens.

Featuring Regina Gomes Teixeira (vocals, percussion), Leonard Constant (vocals, guitar), Silvio Módolo (cavaquinho, viola caipira, accordion, piano, musical direction), Angel Araos (percussion), Jasmin Lalande (saxophones, flute)... and special guests Gabriel Pinto (percussion), Joe Hincke (electric bass, double bass) & Rick Rangno (trumpet, flugelhorn).

"Brazilian Fever — Carnival Party 2013" @ Lago Bar & Grill - 09/02/2013

Brazilian Fever, Carnival, Carnaval, Ottawa, 2013

Extrait du site internet de l’évènement / From the event’s website :

“A complete experience that will allow you to feel the warmth of Brazilian culture, dance, and music.

The evening will begin with an optional dinner at 6:30 for fans of Brazilian Bossa Nova music – the Jazz band “MOONGLOW” will present the greatest successes of this style of music, which is a fusion of lyrical samba and jazz, made famous by Vinicius de Moraes and Tom Jobim.

We’ll warm up the dance floor starting at 8:30 with the following attractions:

  • FLORQUESTRA BRASIL with its mosaic of Brazilian rhythms and songs performed by our dear friend Regina Teixeira and her talented group of musicians.

  • DJ NIGHT GROOVE will play the greatest Brazilian carnaval hits of yesterday and today.

  • SAMBA OTTAWA with its explosive energy, vibrant percussion, tambourines, and agogôs!

  • And, as might be expected, there’ll be a presentation of Brazilian samba performed by the beautiful and graceful dancers “As Tchutchucas Loucas“.

  • To really turn up the heat we’re inviting all guests to come decked out in your best carnaval costume! Those in best costumes will be awarded with some pretty awesome prizes! The only rule is to use your imagination: a feathered carnavalesque beauty, a pirate, a clown, a man dressed as a woman (and vice versa), anything goes!

And all this for only $15 – ensure you buy your ticket now because this price is only for a limited time! Tickets can be purchased via this website or at our office at 110 Clarence Street, Suite 203 (in Ottawa’s Byward Market) or by phone 819.329.6071.”
