Revisiting Os Afro Sambas | Hosted by The Brazilian Consulate – Cultural Affairs
Join us for a live performance celebrating the 1966 recording of the album "Afro Sambas" by the guitarist Baden Powell and poet Vinicius de Moraes. This will be a rare opportunity to hear songs such as Canto De Ossanha, Canto De Iemanjá, and Tempo de Amor, performed live in an intimate setting. This album played a role in bringing about aspects of afro Brazilian culture into Popular Brazilian Music. The two musicians, brilliantly explored the Afro Brazilian religious music of Candomble, and as a result, made it accessible to the Brazilian mainstream.

Also on that evening an exhibit by the renown photographer Adenor Gondim. This exhibit focusses on Irmandade da Boa Morte of the State of Bahia, Northern Brazil. Irmandade da Boa Morte was founded in 1821 has as its goal the preservation of Afro-Brazilian traditions
