Chão Maior is a sextet lead by Yaw Tembe (composition, trumpet), alongside Norberto Lobo (guitar), Leonor Arnaut (vocals), João Almeida (trumpet), Yuri Antunes (trombone), and Ricardo Martins (drums).
Six of the most interesting musicians in the portuguese experimental jazz scene realize the compositions of Yaw Tembe, who has written the first rough outlines of what now became "Drawing Circles" since back in 2018.
"Drawing Circles" is a place where jazz, rock, folk or kraut all come together in a flow whose course is heavily dictated by improvisation and experimentation.
