In 2017, Yuka Kido, who had been performing Brasilian music in Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo, met jazz musician Hiro Honshuku, who was based in New York and Boston, and had been playing with Brazilian musicians for three decades. By May, these two flutists started performing live and in the studio as a unit on the "Love To Brasil Project."


With Yuka's expertise in Brazilian music and culture combined with Hiro's jazz languages learned in the US, this album is filled with originals and Brasilian standards with a unique and exceptional sound. The jacket cover art is the original handwritten music dedicated to this project by Hermeto Pascoal.

This EP has that universal Brazilian feeling 
that proves there are no borders in music, and 
that notes and chords are the language of the angels. 
It was a great joy to hear this new album. 
JOYCE MORENO, Rio de Janeiro, May 8, 2020



Two flutists met in Boston while playing Brazilian music; the songs in their repertoire include a piece which was written for them by Hermeto Pascoal! I’m reminded of the saying, “Inscrutable and interesting are the ways people are brought together.”
 Jin Nakahara, Tokyo, 2020


ブラジル音楽をリオ・東京で演奏してきた城戸夕果と、ボストンとNYCを拠点としブラジル音楽を究めてきているヒロ・ホンシュク。2人のフルート奏者がボストンで出会い新たなチャレンジを始めたのは、2017年5月。Love To Brasil

Projectとして、ボストンを中心にライブやレコーディング活動を続けてきた。ブラジルの空気をたくさん吸い込んだ城戸、ジャズの最先端で磨かれたホンシュクが、ブラジルのスタンダードや書き下ろしの曲などを唯一無二のアレンジで録音したアルバム。ジャケットのアートはエルメート・パスコアールが2人にプレゼントしてくれた収録曲の楽譜。 




このEPアルバムは、ユニバーサルなブラジルの感覚にあふれ、 
音楽に国境がないこと、そして、 
旋律とハーモニーは天使達が語ることばであることの証し。 
この新しいアルバムを聴いて本当に嬉しい。 
ジョイス・モレーノ(2020年5月8日 、リオ・デ・ジャネイロ)



ボストンで出会った2人の日本人フルート奏者が演奏するブラジル音楽、しかもエルメート・パスコアールが書き下ろしてプレゼントした曲まで!”縁は異なもの味なもの”という諺を思い出さずにいられません。中原仁(2020年東京)
