Filipe Raposo - Jazz Live Act in Lisbon

Filipe Raposo Short Info

Filipe Raposo was born in Lisbon in 1979.
He has a Master in Piano Jazz Performance by Royal College of Music (Stockholm), and a Bachelor degree in Classical Composition by Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa.
His grandmother’s piano was his favourite toy since he was little, and religious music choir gave an impulse to start piano studies at the age of eleven. A quick music development led him to discover improvisation on his own, and during his classical training as a pianist he soon became interested in jazz, improvised music and fado.
Since 2001 he works as a composer, arranger and pianist with many of the leading names in Portuguese music and film. He collaborates regularly with the major song-writers of the Portuguese Revolution of 1974 (José Mário Branco, Fausto, Sergio Godinho) and other relevant authors of contemporary vocal music. He also maintains a close relation with some of the most prominent names of the international fado scene such as Joana Amendoeira, Carminho and Camané, and plays in several jazz projects (Yuri Daniel, ToraTora BigBand, Johannes Krieger).
Furthermore, he accompanies silent movies in Portuguese Cinemateca in Lisbon.
In 2013 wrote an original composition for the Nobel Prize of Phisics – Exhibition at Nobel Prize Museum – Stockholm.
Aiming to develop his own language, where classical, folk and jazz meet, he constantly seeks new challenges as a composer and musician.
