Daniel Marques (BRA)
Daria Chernakova (RU)
DM/DC Duo presents a new repertoire based on folkloric and regional afro-brazilian rhythms such as samba, choro, frevo and maracatu. This project showcases a concert hall aproach to this new original material. Also in their concerts are presented authentic versions of pieces of renowned Brazilian composers, such as Hermeto Pascoal, Tom Jobim, Guinga and Baden Powell.
Heavily based on percussive elements and new bass lines technique, Daniel’s unique style of playing the 7-string guitar impresses guitarists around the world developing an orchestral innovative sonority: the whole rythm section in his hands sometimes splitting the instrument in three rythmical voices. Winner of the Brazilian Grammy (Prêmio da Música Brasileira - 2010) he has been acclaimed as "one of the most representative guitarrists of the new generation in Brazil" (“O Globo” newspaper – June, 2012).
In this project, Daniel is joined by the upright bassist from Moscow, Daria Cehrnakova. Starting first as a jazz player in her childhood and getting experience on that field since her early years, Chernakova later graduated in Moscow at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory as a classical musician. There she had the chance to have classes from the renowned bassist Rustem Gabdullin. After performing as a member of symphonic orchestras and participating in classical concerts, Daria became one of those rare players who can work their musicianship in two worlds with recognized talent from both sides: classical and jazz.
Nowadays she goes further expanding her horizons in Brazilian music, Afro-Cuban and Folk. All these elements above can be found on her personal way of playing the bass resulting also in inspired compositions and arrangements of her own.
Besides playing in Russian orchestras, Chernakova shared the stage as a jazz musician with Ari Hoenig, Marcos Valle, Gregory Hutchinson, Alex Sipiagin, Marcos Valle and more.
