Brazilian spirit possession documentary from Híbridos project by Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MARCOS CAMPELLO (guitar)
Campello’s main project Chinese Cookie Poets is at the center of a new experimental-music scene in Rio de Janeiro, associated with the label Quintavant / QTV and the club Audio Rebel. As music critic Clifford Allen noted, their Danza Cava album is “a wonderful, cherished document of genre-busting brazilian free music.”

STEVE DALACHINSKY (poetry)
Poet Steve Dalachinsky occupies a unique place in the jazz firmament: he writes poetry inspired by jazz, he performs and records with jazz musicians and he has supplied liner notes for numerous artists including multi-intrumentalist Anthony Braxton, drummer Rashied Ali and pianist Matthew Shipp.

AARON NOVIK (reeds)
American composer, clarinetist and bandleader based in San Francisco. Novik’s album Secrets of Secrets was released on John Zorn’s Tzadik Records as part of the Radical Jewish Culture Series and was hailed by The Jewish Week as “richly textured and eclectic avant-klez” for its use of the 13th century sacred Kabbalah texts of Rabbi Eleazar of Worms.

DINA MACCABEE (voice/violin)
Dina uses experimental, traditional, and improvisational approaches to viola and violin and creative songwriting. She worked with Julia Holter, Carla Bozulich, Vienna Teng, Ramon & Jessica, Beth Custer, and Real Vocal String Quartet and recorded three albums of original music.

MAX JOHNSON (bass)
Max Johnson is a bassist, composer and bandleader based in New York City. Known for his big sound, eclectic style and prolific output, Johnson has made a name in both the jazz and improvised music world, playing with legendary luminaries Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Muhal Richard Abrams, among others. “The deep, rattling sound that Max Johnson elicits from an upright bass is more than a calling card” – Nate Chinen, The New York Times.

soema
US debut of Argentinean singer Soema Montenegro, known for an intense, dramatic, and innovative style that has drawn comparisons to Yma Sumac and Meredith Monk. Her music is so sensual and overwhelming, that it sometimes seems perilously close to madness.
Soema is a nerd. A magician. A wise woman. A child. A surrealistic poet. A healer.’ – Vincent Moon.
