Europalia Brasil also in Amsterdam together with Brussels..

A Feathered Invasion....Europalia Brazil. Rijkdommen van modern Brazilie.
Samen met Brussel richtte ook Amsterdam met " Het Brazil Festival Amsterdam ( oktober 2011) de schijnwerpers  op Brazilie.
Het BraziliĆ« Festival in Het Concert Gebouw Amsterdam liet zien een verrassende kennismaking met Braziliaanse cultuur. Want Brazilie is al lang niet meer alleen het land van carnaval, samba, swingend voetbal en capoeira.
Het Latijns-Amerikaanse land kent een dynamische economie en een bloeiende cultuur met een rijke scala aan klassieke en moderne uitingsvorm.

De gitaristen Sergio en Odair Assad die al jaren een spraakmakend klassiek gitaarduo vormen en Maria Bethania waren tussen anderen Braziliansen artisten, groot succes.
Want wie over Brazilie praat, weet hij dat Maria Bethania is de stem van Brazilie. Ze is in de loop der jaren uitgegroied tot een van de best verkopende zangeressen in eigen land, bekend geworden met de protestsong Carcara. Ze is altijd kritisch gebleven over de politieke situatie in haar land. Maria Bethania was op het eerste keer in Nederland te zien.
