Brazilian Music Foundation "10th Year Anniversary" Concert

Dear friends,

We are very excited to celebrate our 10th Anniversary on
May 9th, 2024, 8:30PM, at The National Opera Center by presenting a concert entitled:

Brazilian Rhythms and Styles
"A Crossover From Classical to Popular Music"

Our music is our story!

With it we found musical textures, like Lundu, Maxixe, Tango Brasileiro, Choro, Samba, Bossa Nova, MPB, and many countless rhythms and musical genres. Brazil's musical mix is the result of our ethnic and cultural mix. For example, the lundu was adapted by the curumins from the religious songs of the Jesuits, while the chorinho evolved from the mixture of European music brought by the Portuguese court and the street festivals enlivened by the atabaques of African slaves.

This fruitful mixture germinated in our imagination, creating a fusion between popular and classical elements. The communion of ethnic miscegenation with the creative imagination gave rise to our national character and its captivating musicality. The broad and deep links between the history of Brazilian music and its social and cultural elements are demonstrated in this concert.


The concert showcases the richness and variety of Brazilian Rhythms. We will travel together through the history of Brazilian musical styles; showing the diversity of pitches, tones, sounds, and musical colors. The story will be brought to life by a select group of virtuoso musicians.

The chosen repertoire will present the diversity of sounds from each era, the work of several musicians who were part of the history of Brazilian music. From lundu to MPB, we will present some musical hits by artists like; Chiquinha Gonzaga, Ernesto Nazareth, Villa Lobos, Francisco Mignone, Donga, Ary Barroso, Cartola, Dorival Caymmi, Tom Jobim, Zequinha de Abreu, Nelson Cavaquinho, Joćo Gilberto, Milton Nascimento, Luiz Gonzaga, and more...

From Classical sounds to profound popular lyrics, you will be delighted to hear some famous songs that have touched the lives of so many people around the world! We hope you will be moved by the wonderful sounds of Brazilian Music!
