Margareth Menezes / Flora Purim avec Airto Moreira

Concert Double: Voix du Brésil
For a brief evening, Montreal will be illuminated by the stars of Brazil, and filled with the grandiose voices of Margareth Menezes and Flore Purim.

The first represents the new generation, one that grew up with the local folklore but also with funk, rock and African music. Margareth Menezes is fiery passion personified: audiences are powerless to resist, as David Byrne found out at his expense when he invited her to participate in his "Rei Momo Tour" in 1989.

Flore Purim, the second star in the firmament, has more of a penchant for the tonalities of jazz. (Her sultry vocals have accompanied Stan Getz and Chick Corea.) Many see in her the most innovative singer of South America. With her percussionist Airto Moreira, who himself has been around - Miles Davis is just one who appreciated his talent — Flore Purim promises to take us to the torrid climes of her native land.
