In terms of influences we can mention Charles Mingus, Monk, McCoy Tyner, Fela Kuti, Carlos Paredes, Hermeto Pascoal, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, etc...But what is important for CARMEN SOUZA+THEO PASCAL is creating your voice and identity as an artist and you can only do that by first listening to yourself....they also like to call their unique sound "Organic Jazz".

start touring the World and wowing old and new audiences!
