Jim Porto

Brazilian musician Jim Porto studied the piano in his hometown, Rio Grande, mixing classical with samba and Bossa Nova, and gaining fame rapidly. By the age of 20, he was well-known on the stages of his adopted city and the heart of Brazilian beat: Rio de Janeiro from where his touring career took off throughout Latin America. He arrived in Italy at the end of the 70s and Rome welcomed him as enthusiastically as Rio. Spotted by Sandro Melaranci, artistic director of "il Manuia" ‐ the most important Brazilian music venue of the time ‐ he began combining his rhythmic piano technique with his soulful voice, and took forward his already established success. Having performed with big‐name artistes such as jazz musician Chet Baker, who performed in Jim's first album, Brazilian music exponents like Djavan, he has continued the Brazilian tradition of making haunting melodies with his fusion of jazz‐samba‐Afro-funk. He recorded his first LP in 1983 and two years later found himself performing on Italian national television next to Gilberto Gil. He has played in major music festivals from Athens to Paris, Vienna to Zurich, and Munich to Barcelona.

Jim visited Goa in 2017 and was introduced to Lester Godinho, the lead and the drummer of the band, Still Waters. The duo put together a talented group of musicians who backed them at three different venues in Goa inspiring Jim to visit India once again for the forthcoming finale of the Jazz India Circuit 2017-18 in Delhi. Through the dedicated efforts of the management of the International Centre Goa (ICG) and Mr. Yatin Kakodkar in particular, Jim and Still Waters will perform at the JIC closing on March 17th.

Lester Godinho, Still Waters

Lester Godinho, the Still Waters lead, began his rendezvous with music at the age of six, studying violin up to Grade 8, before switching to drums which was natural since his father, Leslie Godinho, is one of India’s most illustrious drummers. Lester’s passion for music has covered diverse genres encompassing pop, rock, funk, Latin, gospel, jazz, fusion, Western/Indian classical, opera, Bollywood and even hip-hop! Besides being a great performer, Lester is also a good teacher and most of his students are now established drummers.
