EUROPEAN TOUR. Benji Kaplan and Rita Figueiredo

The extraordinary vocal/guitar duo of Benji Kaplan and Rita Figueiredo
are making their debut European tour in the Fall of 2018.

Partners in life and in music, they are also partners in songwriting, with Benji’s outstanding compositions blending perfectly with Rita’s compelling and visually expressive lyrics. Likewise, Benji’s virtuosic guitar fuses seamlessly with Rita’s lovely and beguiling voice with an intimacy and unity of essence that is simply mesmerizing.

This tour follows upon the release of their first album together, Benji & Rita on the U.S. label Big Apple Batucada – a stunning achievement with Benji’s sumptuous chamber ensemble-supported arrangements of ten of his and Rita’s songs, plus three more in the stripped-down emotionally charged duo setting that will be the style of their upcoming tour.

While the duo format is far less complex than the righly textured dynamics of the album, the core elements of both of these exceptional artists are fully in play in this intimate, highly personal structure.

Benji’s unique compositions – fully-informed by jazz, chamber, Brazilian and Middle Eastern sonorities and rhythms – are met at a cinematic crossroads by Rita’s visual narratives that deeply reflect her artistry as a filmmaker. Bringing all of these elements together into a context of superb artfulness, the duo performance of Benji and Rita is an alluring and deeply rewarding experience for audiences of all ages and tastes.

The tour is scheduled to begin in November and will bring them to Portugal, Spain, England and Germany. The tour has been partially arranged by top Brazilian agent Renata Franchini, and also represented by Canadian agent Jean-Pierre Leduc’s Lunched Management.
