Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning: “I am what I am because of who we all are”.
In the words of Lupa:
“Ed and I me briefly in Austria in 2012, where the lives. This was a special occasion for me because, in the history of jazz, Ed is an exceptional and renowned trombonist, arranger, and composer. After a few emails, we set up a week of shows in Brazil playing my music and his. When I received Ed’s compositions, I realized how to make the project something even more interesting and bring it all up to the next level: I called Leandro, Bruno and Alex, who are excellent instrumentalists and composers, besides being grat friends…Our souls, raw, spontaneous, honest…here for all. “Ubuntu!”.
