The ECHO Rising Stars series aims to bring you the greatest stars of tomorrow – but Joao Barradas is something of a superstar already. A young Portuguese soloist who’s out to rewrite the rules about what an accordion can do, he moves with effortless style between the worlds of jazz, classical, folk and improv. French composer Yann Robin has composed him something specially for this tour: we don’t know what it sounds like yet but we do know that it’ll be unmissable.
ECHO artist nominated by both Casa da Música, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Philharmonie Luxembourg.
