This event is all ages
Brazilian songstress Lúcia and acclaimed flautist, singer, and composer Rebecca Kleinmann will perform traditional Northern Brazilian popular music, traversing Forró, frevo, and other rhythms. Lúcia soulful interpretations pay reverence to the past with a clairvoyance that sweeps concert-goers up into a proper musical celebration. It was only fitting she partner with Rebecca, as in the words of Latin Grammy Nominated pianist and composer, Jovino Santos Neto, “Rebecca plays flute with the passion of a flamenco dancer.”https://www.sohosb.com/event/1778045/
The honesty and intimacy of Lúcia’s voice holds audiences spellbound and her flawless technique is born from studying and living music since she was a toddler. Lúcia’s songs are her history and also our history. She has such a gift for expressing the core emotion of each piece, it sometimes seems like she is breathing rather than singing.
Her latest release Lúcia (Biscoito Fino Records) is a joyful homage to traditional Brazilian music and features collaborations with special guests Chico Buarque and Miúcha. Her previous albums have included Lúcia Menezes with producer José Milton and arrangements by Cristóvão Bastos and João Lyra; Pintando e bordado which boasted the same team and earned her the “Brazilian Music Award” nomination. Lúcia’s Lucinha celebrated unjustifiably neglected artists in the history of Brazilian music and debuted two previously unpublished songs by the composer and journalist Angela Brandão.
