Planeta Azul, led by Luciano Antonio, is a fusion of uniquely gifted musicians and lovely dancers (“Passistas”) who bring the splendor of Brazilian music and dance to every event, celebrating the beauty of sound, movement and culture!
Made up of some of the most highly regarded musicians in the Chicago music scene, each musician is a master of their respective craft, possessing the innate sense needed to achieve the passion of this compelling music and beat. This young and dynamic group heats up the Brazilian and Latin music scene throughout Chicago and the Midwest. Individually and together they are among the most commissioned artists for collaborative works, which include professional recordings, concerts, and other social and private events. Recent engagements include the Jakarta International Jazz Festival, opening performances for Caetano Veloso, Vinicius Cantuaria, Virginia Rodrigues, Howard Levy, Roberto Assad, Bobby Broom, Bob Lizik, Yolanda Adams and Joe Vasconcelos, the Chicago Mayor’s Office of Special Events, and The Democratic Convention of 2004.
