For more than forty years Brazilian they have been concertizing, together revered worldwide as The Assad Duo. Odair Assad’s first North American concert tour began in February 2011, featuring concerts in Montreal and at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. In April 2012, Sergio and Odair toured North America with Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott, in a program of Latin American works as arranged by Sergio as well as some of his original compositions, highlighted by concerts at the new Smith Center in Las Vegas and Chicago’s Symphony Hall. In the spring of 2013, Sergio and Odair toured with the inimitable Paquito D’Rivera as well as a record release of their project, “Dances from the New World.” Odair is based in Brussels where he teaches at Ecole Supérieure des Arts.
