Carnegie Hall Presents

Voices from Brazil

The vast panorama of Brazilian music is on display with this series, curated by the iconic Gilberto Gil: contemporary and traditional music from Northeastern Brazil, the latest in Brazilian popular music, and a double-bill of folk-pop fusion and retro-chic samba. All of it is part of Carnegie Hall’s festival, Voices from Latin America.
