Jan 31 - Brazil's Modern Poets

Panorama Brasil and the Melbourne Recital Centre present:

Brazil's Modern Poets

Featuring Diana Clark, Jacqueline Gawler, and Doug de Vries

In this brand new presentation, Panorama Brasil turns their focus to the great lyricists of Brazil...

From the earliest days of samba, Brazil has produced lyricists capable of social insight, cutting wit and subtle beauty. From the protest songs of the dictatorship eras, to the intimacy of bossa nova, Panorama Brasil presents incredible songs from some of Brazil’s greatest modern poets, including Chico Buarque, Fernando Brant, Vinicius de Moraes and Edu Lobo.

Tickets through the Melbourne Recital Centre.
