The renowned singer-songwriter Renato Teixeira is in Brasilia this Friday, April 6 to perform a new concert at Pavilhão de Exposições do Parque da Cidade. The concert is part of the program of the Salão do Artesanato (Hall of Crafts).
Renato Teixeira is one of Brazil’s most prolific singer-songwriters in the caipira genre — a country-folk style of music from (or about) the hinterlands of the states of São Paulo, Paraná, Minas Gerais, Goias, Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul.
This rural genre is closely and often indistinguishably related to classic country music in Brazil, known as sertanejo. Teixeira’s song “Romaria,” a sensation when sung by Elis Regina in 1977, is credited with having changed the connotations of the word caipira and cut away at prejudices against caipiras in Brazil.
