Listed by: Alda Rezende

In the early 70's, a music collective from Minas Gerais (Brazil) lead by Milton Nascimento, Lô and Márcio Borges, kickstarted with the albums Clube da Esquina (cover in event picture, a classic of MPB) and Clube da Esquina 2 what was to be one of the most important movements of Brazilian music.

Brazilian songstress Alda Rezende will be in the company of a first class band: guitarists Noel Clayton (NZ) and Matias Ceballos (Chile), bassist/guitarist Henrique Morales (Brazil) and drummer Lance Phillip (USA/NZ).

Together, they will present some of the fiercely original and idiosyncratic compositions of Clube da Esquina.

Prepare to hear music from deep Brazil, , unexpected as far as expectations of stereotypical Brazilian music go: Clube da Esquina has folk in it, but it is not folk. It has jazz in it, but it is not jazz. It has rock in it, but it is not rock. It has traces of an African Brazil that is different from samba… surprising music quite difficult to describe.
