João Barradas, born 1992, is one of the most reputable and accomplished European accordionists, meandering between classical music, jazz and improvised music. He won some of the most prestigious competitions and awards, among them the highly acclaimed Made In New York Jazz Competition where he won the Solo Instrumental Category as well as the All Category Award.
HOME is a project led by João Barradas, accordionist and rising star of the Portuguese jazz scene. After his celebrated debut album Directions, this project unfolds with a musical style somewhere between jazz, improvised music and rock where the passion for complex bars really shows.
Featuring exclusively the MIDI version of the accordion, this project became a home to new concepts in the rich musical universe of João Barradas – where an ending does not necessarily means to stop but instead creating the possibility for new beginnings.
