Candid shot of Trio da Paz during a live performance.

Brazilian jazz group Trio da Paz recently performed at the Bickford Theatre, a rare treat for fans since they only play live a few times per year. The trio has been performing together for more than 30 years and consists of guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka da Fonseca.
