Duo ALON & JOCA is an encounter between two eclectic and virtuoso
musicians, Israeli pianist/composer/arranger Alon Yavnai & Brazilian
singer/songwriter & percussionist Joca Perpignan.
The long and special connection between them makes their music deep
and unique. Their international career experience brings to their music
a variety of influences from around the globe, which reflects in their
original compositions and arrangements, creating an exciting and
boundless music.
The duo has performed at the Savassi Jazz Festival & Sala Baden
Powell in Brazil, Red Sea Jazz Festival in Israel, International Jazz
Festival at Punta Del Este in Uruguay, Jazz Open Festival in Germany,
and Province Jazz Festival in Russia.
Celebrating their new recording with the renowned NDR Bigband in
Hamburg, ALON & JOCA are performing one show at Birdland, as part
of their U.S tour.
Alon Yavnai’s big band, which features the top players of New York,
was featured at Lincoln Center, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, Bryant Park
outdoor festival, and Scullers Jazz Club in Boston.
Joca's drums and Alon's piano engagement was fascinating!

“ With their ability to establish their own musical intimate language
through improvisation and spontaneity, ALON & JOCA create a unique
interaction, the result of this eclectic dialogue, which feeds itself from
two voices and instruments who are meant for each other.”
