Clarice Assad, HOME

Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as a “serious triple threat,” Grammy award nominee Clarice Assad is praised internationally for her work as a pianist, arranger, vocalist and composer. The daughter of Sergio Assad, one half of the celebrated duo, the Assad Brothers, who are arguably the greatest classical duo in the history of Brazilian music, and the cousin of the guitar master Badi Assad, Clarice’s talents are the product of a rich musical heritage. A versatile artist of musical depth and sophistication, Clarice’s compositions have been performed and recorded by musicians both in the classical and the jazz realms, including Yo Yo Ma, the Turtle Island String Quartet, and the New Century Chamber Orchestra, as well as many others. Clarice has been lauded as a “charismatic singer’ by The New York Times. Home introduces the Clarice Assad Trio, which explores Brazilian music in an entirely new way, on both creative original compositions and daring arrangements incorporating elements of pop, contemporary classical music and middle-eastern beats and rhythms with a traditional Brazilian sensibility.
