About

Brazil and Beyond Brazil and Beyond: From L-R Rob Emanuel, Kurt Schreitmueller Rich Kowalewski, Garry Weinberg, Hans Muer

In 1998 Brazil and Beyond was founded by prominent Detroit-area music educator and multi-instrumentalist Rich Kowalewski (6-string Bass Guitar, Cavaquinho and Double Bass) presenting Brazilian and Latin classics in their own inimitable style. Over the years, the band further explored pop classics as well as European classical material, putting their unique stamp on The Beatles, Bach, Chopin and more. Notable performances include the International Detroit Jazz Festival, Arts, Beats and Eats, Birmingham Concerts in the Park, Max M. Fisher Music Center, Detroit Festival of the Arts, and the Macomb Performing Arts Center among many others.
