Nanny Assis has music running through his veins, making him an outstanding singer, a terrific drummer/percussionist, and a talented songwriter who has broadly touched hearts and souls through musical expressions that go beyond comprehension.
Since 1986, when he began his successful professional career, Nanny has played with amazing artists like Vinicius Cantauria, Eumir Deodato, and John Patitucci. Yet, despite the grandeur of the folks with whom he's sided, Nanny has always managed to find his forte.
With a great ability to perform Bossa Nova, Brazilian Jazz, Forro and a myriad of Afro-Brazilian sounds, Nanny has cheered audiences around the world and has shown particular skills in engaging the public with personal charisma and unique stage interaction.
It is amazing how Nanny adds beat to the Forro dance, an already stirring Brazilian rhythm, so as to entice Brazilians and foreigners to mingle themselves equally, body with body, "levantando poeira," or sweeping dust out of the floor, as the Brazilians prefer to say it.
