Jonathan Ferr

Event Slider

Born and raised in Madureira – the suburban neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro considered the birthplace of samba and charme dance – Jonathan Ferr is the embodiment of breaking paradigms, an artist who has defied expectations and established himself as one of the pioneers of urban Jazz in Brazil. Mixing elements of Hip Hop, R&B, and references to Brazilian culture, Ferr is a multifaceted musician, whose colorful and Afro-futuristic aesthetic shines through in the music videos he creates himself.

Following Trilogia do Amor (2019) and Cura (2020), the musician’s third album, Liberdade (2023), features special collaborations with artists from the new generation of Brazilian urban music such as Coruja BC, Zudzilla, and Kaê Guajajara. Jonathan has performed at some of the world’s top jazz festivals and venues.
