Sounds from Brazil (a lecture-recital)

In this lecture-recital, Heloisa Feichas and Rita Medeiros will present an overview of the rich legacy of Brazilian popular songs. In a journey through sinuous melodic lines and complex harmonies, supported by the strength of rythms in genres such as samba, frevo, and choro, the songs reveal colorful sounds and evoke landscapes and scenes from Brazilian life. The recital features icons such as Noel Rosa, Tom Jobim, Edu Lobo, Chico Buarque, Dori Caymmi, Jonny Alf, Guinga, Francis Hime and Gilberto Gil, who will be represented in this panorama in a unique and very rich blend between poetry and music.
