Born in Pernambuco, Brazil, Sander Pinheiro, a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist has become one of the best interpreters of Brazilian jazz worldwide. Fusing the Brazilian sound with American music, this artist has delighted audiences in Brazil and the US with his captivating, unique sound. Music has always been a part of Sander’s life beginning when he was just a child. His interest in music and the arts grew over the years and really took off when he was 15 years old and moved from Recife to São Paulo, Brazil. This was the start to his musical career. Sander began his career with gospel music like most of the great interpreters of “soul” music. His move to Atlanta almost 10 years ago was motivated by a professional invitation to develop activities related to gospel music. Over the years, this musician has had the opportunity to sing at various music festivals and jazz clubs and split with renowned artists in various cities in the United States, such as New York, New Orleans, Miami, Helen, and Athens, among others.

Names like Milton Nascimento, Rosa Passos, Luiz Gonzaga, Tom Jobim, Djavan, Ed Motta, George Benson and Al Jarreau are some of the great musical references that supported the construction of Sander’s sophisticated and diverse music. Mixing jazz, funk, and Samba, the show of this artist is considered one of the most beautiful representations of Brazilian music abroad.
