About the artists

Master Drummer Carlos Ferreira is one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative interpreters of Samba Jazz and Brazilian rhythms. Born and raised in Vila Isabel, Rio de Janeiro, the suburb is to samba what old New Orleans is to jazz.

Merging classic Bossa Nova, Jazz and Samba, Dany Maia embodies the true spirit of Brazil with her authentic sounds and irrepressible stage presence. Brazilian singer, actor and songwriter Mario Broder beguiles audiences with the beauty and warmth of his voice.

About the concert

Joined by an exceptional musical lineup, their performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall pays tribute to the famous 1966 concerts by Brazilian singers Jair Rodrigues and Elis Regina held at Paramount Theatre. The concerts known as Dois Na Bossa saw two icons perform to an ecstatic local crowd, singing the works of great Brazilian composers with extraordinary power.

Recreating history, the performance will travel back to a time when beautiful music fed the souls of every Brazilian, and when Samba was the quintessential way of life. A poetic, joyful and unforgettable experience, taking listeners on a journey to the heart of Brazil.
