Brasilíski söngvarinn og gítarleikarinn Ife Tolentino er staddur við upptökur á Íslandi og kemur til með að leika í Mengi með tónlistarbróður sínum Óskari Guðjónssyni saxófónleikara mánudags-, þriðjudags- og miðvikudagskvöld.
Leiðir þeirra lágu saman í London er Óskar var búsettur þar. Eitt af markmiðum Óskars var að kynnast brasilískum gítarleikara og söngvara til að nema þá fögru list sem þetta einstaklega hjartalýja fólk hefur gefið umheiminum.
Bossa Nova og Samba eru bara þekktustu stílar þessa margslungna tónlistarstíls sem Ife og Óskar munu leika. Það má segja að þetta hafi verið ást við fyrsta tón. Vinátta Ife og Óskars hefur gefið af sér geisladiskinn VOCÊ PASSOU AQUI sem kom út árið 2012. Þeir vinna nú að annarri plötu.

The Brazilian singer and guitar player Ife Tolentino is coming to Iceland for the 16th year in a row to play with Óskar Guðjónsson saxophone player at Mengi. They are working on a new record together.
Their paths first crossed in London when Óskar was living there. One of Óskar´s goals was to get to know a Brazilian guitar player and singer to study the beautiful art which these wonderfully warm people have given the world. Bossa Nova and Samba are the two most well known of the complex styles of music which Ife and Óskar will be playing. One could say that this was love at first note. The cd VOCÊ PASSOU AQUI is the product of Ife and Óskars friendship. Ife´s silky smooth voice and complete immersion in the music along with Óskar´s unique saxophone playing is guaranteed to move you.
In Ife´s words “This project actually started without us even realising it the first time I met Óskar in London. It was as if we had been playing together for years and he knew all about the groove and soul of Brazilian music yet in such a way that he added something very special to it. Two years later I was in Iceland playing with Óskar and other Icelandic musicians. The feeling grew even stronger. I had found a new way of playing the music that I love”.
