Brazilian-born composer Clarice Assad carries a substantial family
musical legacy. Her father and uncle, Sergio and Odair Assad, are
internationally celebrated guitarists who perform and record as
the Assad Brothers. Her aunt is the equally well-known

"I used to be quite scared in the nighttime alone
with my wild imagination," she said. "So I
started a journal using vivid memories of my
dreams, which I used to create sketches of the
