En Movimiento is a disc that shows a walk between the cultures of two countries, Brazil and Cuba. Long before living in Brazil, Yaniel already felt as a part of the ecxelent melody and harmony that the Bossa Nova brings to music, of the cults and indigenous rituals and of a city like São Paulo, where we find a wide variety of miscegenation. In this record Yaniel presents his sextet, giving us a summary of this Cuban experience in Bazil in a jazz language filed with colors and descriptive sounds, looking for new trends.
“Yaniel Matos can elevate the mind of the listener to the most noble dimension of pleasure in a context far from our ultra coded caged minds.” This is the critical set of Enzo Pavoni, from Jazz Magazine (Italy).
Yaniel had his first contacts with music through his family, listening to his uncles and grandparents. At eight years old he began to study violoncello and piano at the Estevan Sala Conservatory of Cuba and in 1994 he moved to Havana, where he finished his studies of composition at the Superior Arts Institute, being graded by the teachers Harold Gramatges and Jose Loyola.
In the short time that he spent in Havana, he played with some of the most prestigious band of the country, performing with musicians like Chucho Valdes, Issac Delgado, Orlando Valles Maraca and many others, travelling to several internacional tours. Yaniel moved to Brazil in 2000 and settled in São Paulo, a city that allows him to study and play diferent styles and music genres. In 2003he started the Mani Padme Trio along with the drummer Ricardo Mosca and Du Moreira, the bass player, recording their first CD “Um dia de chuva” (“A day of rain”). Released in Brazil by Tratore and in Italy by Red Records record (https://www.tradebit.com), this CD is a touching mixture of the Brazilian and Cuban accents in the latin jazz world.
The second CD of Mani Padme Trio, “Depois” (“After”) was released in 2007 by the same record, Red Records, but with a diferent bass player, having Zeca Assumpção instead of Du Moreira and taking as a guest Teco Cardoso, who played the flute and sax.
In 2006, Yaniel created a group called “Cuba Jazz Plus”, a contemporary jazz quintet formed by excellent Cuban jazzizts, given that Yosvany Terry (sax), Dafnis Prieto (drums), Yunior Terry (bass), live in New York and Julio Padron (trumpet) in Cuba. This quintet performed in many Brazilian cities with tremendous success.
Yaniel, who has played and recorded with musicians like Carlinhos Brown, Célia Cruz, Kiko Loureiro, Angra, Timbalada, Heartbreakers, Jane Brunnett, Lenine, Los Jubilados, Antonio Pinto, Rosário Flores, amongst others, presents his third disc, En Movimiento.
