Brazilian Nites


Vinicius Cantuária in Los Angeles

Born in Manaus, Amazonas, Vinicius grew up in Rio de Janeiro, and after several successful records, he moved to New York in the mid-90s. He has proved himself in a number of fields, directly or indirectly linked to Brazilian music. Leader of the rock band “O Terco”, he released six albums in Brazil in the 80s and with his album “Sol na Cara” (Grammavision), was a pioneer of the neo-Brazilian music in 1996. He then became one of the most important downtown New York figures, multiplying collaborations with artists as eclectic as Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, Brad Mehldau, Arto Lindsay, etc.

As part of our Musician’s Room series, we are delighted to host Vinicius Cantuaria. Singer, guitarist, composer, drummer, and percussionist, Vinicius Cantuaria is a well-known Brazilian musician in the sphere of Bossa Nova and Jazz. Cantauria is the doyen of Brazilian singer-songwriters, more melodic than Caetano Veloso, more consistent than Gilberto Gil and with more talent than Max De Castro, Otto and Patricia Marc put together. If more people covered his songs, we’d be talking about him as the new Tom Jobim.” – John Walters, London Guardian. He is touring in support of his new record Psychedelic Rio (Sunnyside, 2024).

Sat, Apr 13, 7:30 PM, Los Angeles.
