01.26 - Forró group Falamansa

 

Forró group Falamansa is pioneer in the so-called “Forró Universitário”. The dancing and passionate music of the group has marked a whole generation. The group comes to Brasília to present the last concert of its recent tour “Lá da Alma”.

 

 

It’s commonly believed that Brazil’s national dance is Samba. Not so. There is only one dance rhythm that is danced throughout the entire country and it’s called Forró. The dance is at least 50 years old and the music is older.

 

Falamansa helped to revamp this rhythm for the younger audiences. With the rise of the forró on the nights of the capital of São Paulo, the “forró universitário” movement emerged all over the country.

Andrea Bocelli in Brasília

 

Andrea Bocelli comes to Brazil in 2018 with his new world tour. In Brasilia, the artist performs at Estádio Nacional (National Stadium) on September 20. To celebrate 20 years since his original release, a new special anniversary edition of the album "Romanza" was released in November 2016 worldwide.

The Italian opera tenor is known for his unique blend of opera and pop music. Bocelli's breakthrough came in 1992, when he was asked by Italian pop star Zucchero Fornaciari to record a demo of "Miserere", a song intended for renowned vocalist Luciano Pavarotti.

Though he claimed opera as his first love, Bocelli mixed arias with popular music on his recordings (a genre referred to by the press as "popera") in an effort to expand his audience base.
