About Panorama Brasil
Australia meets South America in the eclectic music of contemporary jazz ensemble Panorama Brasil. Led by percussionist-composer Alastair Kerr, the band draws from Brazil’s diverse musical landscape, taking influence from Afro-Brazilian rhythms, bossa nova and folklore.
About the concert
For this performance, the ensemble takes inspiration from the story of Afro-Brazilian deity Oxóssi. After tempting fate, Oxóssi is spared death, only to discover that he can no longer recognise his family. Separated from his loved ones, he spends the rest of his days wandering the forests, where he becomes a supreme hunter and a spiritual guardian of the lands. This ancient tale of fate and fortune, tragedy and transformation, is encapsulated by Panorama Brasil’s expressive music-making and gift for storytelling.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
