Elis (guitar/vocals) & Catherine (cello) pay tribute to the great composers and lyricists of Brazil, with touches of North and South American folk music, European dance music and African rhythms, while creating their own, unique sound and Brazilian music inspired originals. Come to hear our new compositions and a selection of your favorites of "Um Gosto de Sol", as usual elegantly rendered on bowed, plucked and vocal strings.

A 21st century musical fairy tale

Once upon a time, two musicians from Europe met in a New England winter and discovered they were both under the spell of Brazilian music. From this fateful meeting a unique musical voice arose and the duo Elis & Catherine was born. Catherine Bent is a cellist from London who now lives in the United States, and Elis Roseira, born in Germany, is the duo’s guitarist and singer. Both of them are versatile freelance musicians who have spent time in Rio de Janeiro at the source of choro, bossa nova and MPB (música popular brasileira). Catherine Bent played cello for Cirque du Soleil’s Tour of “Quidam”, has been a guest soloist multiple times on Brazil’s Rádio Nacional with historic choro band Conjunto Época de Ouro, and is on the faculty of Berklee College of Music. Elis studied with Peter O’Mara and Freddie Bryant at Berklee College of Music and is a jazz singer, guitarist, and bandleader in Munich, Germany.
