BRASIL 70: SAMBA / SOUL / RESISTANCE

Highlighting some of Brazil’s most well-known, traditional musical genres alongside internationally-influenced, hybrid musical forms, BRASIL 70 will take the audience on a musical journey of socio-political turmoil, viewed through the lens of the 1970s.

1970s Brazil was a dichotomy: A soccer superpower and "Country of the Future" run by a military dictatorship that severely repressed artists, intellectuals, and progressive activists. Under the thumb of extreme censorship, artists created some of Brazil’s most compelling musical/social/political movements and produced an incredible body of work before the digital age of mass consumption. 

The musicians of the Samba Society collective (which includes MôForró, and Os Zagueiros)—along with some very special guests—will defy genre boundaries and be in dialogue with current affairs and political movements.
