Susana Santos Silva is a trumpeter, improviser and composer from Porto, Portugal. In the last years she has been considered by the international press as one of the strongest emerging voices in contemporary jazz and improvised music. With a singular approach/voice that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of influences, from classical and contemporary music to jazz and textural sound art, she is interested in stretching the boundaries of the instrument and in exploring new ways of expression within music. Equally at home with structured ensemble playing or free improvisation and extended technique, Silva regularly performs in a variety of settings, from orchestral to solo. She has been traveling, performing and recording with many amazing musicians in Portugal, Spain, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Kosovo, Serbia, Italy, Greece, Egipt, Morocco, Ireland, UK, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, USA, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia. On the occasion of 37th edition of Skopje Jazz Festival, Susana will perform in trio formation, along with fantastic Dutch saxophone/clarinet player and composer Ab Baars and with one of jazz's best percussionist, Chicago based drumming legend Hamid Drake.
