Brazilian singer Chico César takes the stage of Caixa Cultural this weekend. The musician from the state of Paraíba brings to Brasília the praised tour “Estado de Poesia”, in which poetry and music are mixed together.

Chico César comes from Brazil’s long-suffering northeast, and he has long been a champion of his state and of his region. His music reflects the rhythms and dance styles of the northeast – from the frevo of Recife’s Carnaval, to the endemic dance rhythm, forró, and on to the tradition of folk ballads from the harsh sertão in the interior of the northeast that punishes those that live in it and love it.
