Marcelo Jeneci has always assumed to be a big fan of Erasmo Carlos. In several interviews, Jeneci commented on the inspiration that the work of Erasmo brought him to compose the songs of “Feito Pra Acabar” (Made to End),his debut album released in 2010. In 2012 Jeneci made his dream come true and could share the stage with his idol, at the theatre of SESC Pompeia, in São Paulo.

Series of shows performed by Tom Zé at SESC Pompeia and SESC Santana (São Paulo), where he brought a repertoire that involved a series of symbols with which the citizen lives daily. According to Tom Zé, this visual, artistic and symbolic language is like a public food. And a spatial identity that relates the man with his environment and culture in general. "Moreover, I will present successes that somehow came out of the same scrip, that same womb as "A Briga do edifício Itália com o Hilton Hotel", "Augusta, Angélica and Consolation", "O Abacaxi Irará" and other “objects” taken from the plurality of day-to-day to the uniqueness of the artwork, said Tom Zé at the time of the shows.

Sonora Brazil Project - The Bellows’Accents
The eight bass concertina is one of the instruments that is more identified with the culture of the Northeast, where it is also known, among other names, such as goat's foot. The instrument is directly related to oral tradition and its pitch, known as pitch transported, had its original diatonic changed over time from the action of the musicians themselves, who sought to expand their melodic possibilities. Heleno Pereira dos Santos, the Truvinca, is one of those great masters who understands the importance of preservation and dissemination of traditional repertoire as representative of the development of northeastern music, but he is still little known. With his technique and full mastery of the repertoire, he fights to maintain an interpretative style, true to the original forms. He performed in Sonora Brazil accompanied by Alex da Zabumba and Otacílio do Trianglo, a typical Northeast formation.

Sonora Brasil Project - The Bellows’ Accents
Known in southern Brazil as harmonica - point, two conversation harmonica or eight bass acordeona, it works in a system called "changed voice," where each button generates two distinct sounds depending on the direction of movement of the bellows, which differs from keyboard accordion, on which each key or button corresponds to a single note, regardless of the movement of the bellows. Unlike the instrument used in the Northeast, the Southern eight bass harmonica and two sequences is essentially diatonic, influencing traditional gaucha music.

Cearábia is a spectacle of music and dance in 10 acts that walks through some of the roots of religious, ethnic and cultural miscegenation existing in the Northeast of Brazil, where we can see traces of Jewish, Islamic, Indian and Gypsy cultures. This musical work was born from the meeting of two people from Ceará: Lenna, who lived and worked 10 years in Spain, North Africa and in the Middle East, carrying a very particular musical and aesthetics luggage; and Kalil, a sound engineer, and a cosmopolitan pop producer. They formed a partnership that combined the magic of Spain, Eastern and Brazilian swing with the sound of our country side, a language with innovation and creativeness. The female characters are represented through dance in a range of possibilities that allows us a glimpse on how rich the miscegenation of the Brazilian people is.

Group: Balladeers Broken Hearted, USA

Writer/composer/director Richard Maxwell reveals his passion for Westerns in his new play. “Ode to the Man Who Kneels” was premiered at the Belluard Bollwerk International Festival in Fribourg, Switzerland in June 2007 and enjoyed a five-week sold out run at the Performing Garage in New York in November-December 2007. Maxwell’s anti-style musical is about the violent quest for love, and a town called Grid where balladeers compete for the affections of beautiful women. Often turning to musicals without conforming to the conventions of a Broadway musical, Maxwell’s works evoke purity and a true sense of emotion.

It wasn’t exactly a show neither a class, but a unique blend of both, bringing together the musical, literary and academic talent of composer, singer and pianist Zé Miguel Wisnik - recognized as one of the top names in Brazilian music - and the composer, guitarist , critic and writer Arthur Nestrovski. The spectacle brought a selection of songs from Wisnik and other authors (including Nestrovski) among a variety of conversations on various subjects. From the formation of Brazilian songbook to how to compose music and lyrics, from the transformed power of bossa-nova and Tropicália to the debate about the "death of the song", Wisnik and Nestrovski sing and tell our music, set by them in the context of Brazilian culture nowadays.

The "Summer Travel", formed by Jussara Silveira (voice), André Mehmari (piano) and Arthur Nestrovski (guitar), presents versions of compositions by Schubert (1797-1828) and Schumann (1810-56), recreated as Brazilian pieces performed by this new virtuous triangle. The union of the Austrian or German sublime melodies with Brazilian lyrics by Nestrovski reminds us that Schubert could have chosen better partners, even when the "lyricist" was Goethe, for example.
Our three artists lined the lieder, properly “Brazilianized” in the lyrics, to  compositions of great national names (Caetano, Caymmi etc..), Acquainting a repertoire that can mean many things at the same time: how the song is old! How the song is alive! How the song still promises!
