Eduardo Cardinho, vibraphonist and composer based in Porto, presents his latest project “Not Far From Paradise”, which resulted in the creation of an album released in 2024 by the prestigious Barcelona label, Fresh Sound.

Standing out as one of the most creative vibraphonists of his generation, known for his rhythmic approach and unique sound, Cardinho developed over the years his own voice on the vibraphone and met some of the best musicians of the newgeneration of Portuguese and Biazilian jazz scene to be part of this project. An incessant search for newsounds culminating in a new approach in the composition of new songs, where Eduardo Cardinho’s vibraphone and José Diogo Martins’ synthesizers complement each other with a panoply of sound possibilities, also adding the alto saxophone with effects by João Mortágua and the rhythm section composed of Diogo Alexandre on drums, the virtuoso Frederico Heliodoro on electric bass and Iuri Oliveira on percussions.
