One of the most outstanding jazz-accordionists of his generation, Portuguese João Barradas already has a multitude of collaborations and recordings under his belt.
Barradas continues his international success with a new venture: as one of 2019–20's ECHO Rising Stars. French composer Yann Robin, who has enjoyed similar international success, goes back to his jazz-based roots to provide an ideal composing partner to Barradas.
Nominated by Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon, Casa da Música Porto and Philharmonie Luxembourg.
