Mishka Adams & Beto Caletti

Puentes Invisibles Album Launch

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Tonight Mishka Adams and Beto Caletti present their album 'Puentes Invisibles'. This album is the fruit of a transatlantic collaboration between London and Buenos Aires.  The duo has its musical roots firmly planted in South America’s Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions, and their compositions emerge from this melting pot of rhythms, taking the listener on a journey through South America in four diverse languages – Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Tagalog (Filipino).  The combination of guitar, handheld percussion and intricate vocal harmonies bring an intimate experience of story and song, tradition and innovation, and love across continents.

He is an extraordinary and highly talented musician.When he walks the path of his Brazilian influences he sounds Brazilian and even better than many Brazilian musicians of great fame here in Brazil.” - Ivan Lins, multi Grammy Award-winning musician

Book tickets for Mishka Adams & Beto Caletti

Sparked by a mutual love of Brazilian music that led to a transatlantic collaboration between London and Buenos Aires, the duo of Beto and Mishka has its musical roots firmly planted in South America’s Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions. Their sound stretches from the African influenced Baião of northeastern Brazil, south through the jazzy harmonies of samba and bossa nova from Rio, down into the earthy beats of Uruguayan candombe, and arriving finally at the dancing rhythms of the chacarera and milonga of Argentina.

Their compositions emerge from this melting pot of rhythms, and take the listener on a journey through South America in four diverse languages – Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Tagalog (Filipino) – Mishka’s mother tongue. The combination of guitar, handheld percussion and intricate vocal harmonies bring an intimate experience of story and song, tradition and innovation, and love across continents.

Beto, from Argentina, has performed on stages all over the world, such as the Montreux Jazz Festival and festivals in Japan, working with artists such as Ivan Lins and Roberto Menescal. He is a renowned composer, performer and educator of South American music, having written three books on the subject and given workshops all over South America and Japan. Mishka, from Manila, Philippines made a name for herself on the Jazz and Brazilian music scenes in both London and her hometown of Manila, as well as touring worldwide. To date they have released multiple albums on Candid Records, Fonarte and Inpartmaint(JP). They divide their time between Buenos Aires and London.
