Orquestra Atlantica


The Orquestra Atlântica was founded in 2012 as a way of recreating the sound of the Brazilian traditional music with a contemporary touch, while having a rhythmic and brass section that resembles a Big Band. It is formed by:

Marcelo Martins (sax tenor and flute)

Danilo Sinna (alto sax and flute)

Elias "Kibe" Borges (sax baritone, clarinet and clarone)

Jessé Sadoc (trumpet and flügelhorn)

Gesiel Nascimento (trumpet and flügelhorn)

Aldivas Ayres (trombone)

Wanderson Cunha (trombone)

Glauton Campello (piano)

Jorge Helder (bass)

Williams Mello (drums)

and Armando Marçal (percussion)

Playing together for more than 15 years, Marcelo, Aldivas, and Jessé have always dreamt of forming a big band that surpasses their desire to recreate the sound of the traditional orchestras of Rio de Janeiro. But the band only started to get together after the trio participated in Danilo Sinna's project "Jazz na Garagem” (Jazz in the Garage), which brought together musicians in the garage of their parents' house located at the Morro do Adeus, a community belonging to Complexo do Alemão, in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro.

Still unnamed, the group made their first appearance in 2012 at Miranda, in Rio de Janeiro. The musician Glauton Campello, a friend and fan of the orchestra, was the one who named it. - "It's a name that has everything to do with our repertoire," Marcelo says. - “We have the forest the ocean, and the Avenue (Atlantica, in Copacabana).”
