78 Rotações Cycle | Joana Amendoeira and Terno Carioca Concert
Ester de Abreu (Lisbon, 1921 - Rio de Janeiro, 1997) began her career in Portugal, having moved to Brazil in the late 1949s, achieving immediate success as a singer for Rádio Nacional and becoming one of the Portuguese singers with the greatest recognition in the country. Most of her repertoire is forgotten in old 78 rpm records.
To pay tribute to the singer, Joana Amendoeira - one of today's most celebrated Portuguese singers - joins the band Terno Carioca for a concert that intends to recreate and, at the same time, highlight the artistic legacy of one of the greatest Portuguese singers to establish musical bridges with Brazil.
Terno Carioca is a Brazilian instrumental group formed by Vinicius Lucena (guitar), Lena Verani (clarinet), and Pedro Aragão (mandolin).
The concerts will take place on March 31st, Friday, at 9:30pm, and on April 1st, Saturday, at 7pm, at Teatro da Vista Alegre.
