Hendrik Meurkens and Helio Alves have been playing together since 1994, when they first toured Europe with the Hendrik Meurkens Samba Jazz Quartet. That same year, they recorded their first CD October Colors.
In the last decade, Hendrik and Helio have become regular collaborators on a variety of projects. They have toured and recorded repeatedly and their duo performances within the context of the Samba Jazz Quartet eventually grew into a project of its own.
Equally at home with Brazilian music and Jazz, their repertoire includes choros, jazz standards, their own originals and lots of Jobim.
