Jeanne Bastos Jeanne Bastos

Gavin's new Brazillian band, Sussurro, will start our year with a sultry mid-january party.  they'll be recording a video clip.  Enjoy classic and innovative readings of the timeless Brazilian songbook - echoes of Jobim, Luis Bonfa, Joao and Astrud Gilberto, Gal Costa, Djavan and others.

Forming the core of Sussurro are Jeanne Bastos (vocals, percussion) Peter Toohey (guitar) and Gavin Ahearn (piano). Jeanne is “the real deal” bringing her heritage from Bahia to down under. Peter continues his decades long love affair with the Brazilian guitar tradition. Gavin is a Colbourne regular. In the engine room are bassist Peter Gray who studied in NY with John Pattituci, and the in-demand and diverse Tim Bradley on percussion/drums. Sussurro are a whisper of Brazil on a sultry summer night in Sydney. Come and enjoy.
