Thirty singers from the all-female vocal group, some performing for their first time, were joined by the vibrant band, conducted by Maestro Jorge L. Sosa, along with the percussionists from Samba RJ.
The concert featured performances by Fábio Barros and dancers from Cia do Axé, who delivered impeccable choreographies, including an energetic Maracatú. Capoeira performers led by Professor Pica-Pau and Berimbau players from the LuandAngola center were also among the guest artists.
This energy-packed, one-of-a-kind concert captivated the audience with exhilarating Brazilian music by Gilberto Gil, Djavan, Daniela Mercury, Maria Gandú, Lenine, Milton Nascimento, Marisa Monte, Chico Buarque de Holanda, Caetano Veloso, and Gilberto Gil, among others. The program had a unique rendition of Alicia Key’s hit of Girl on Fire complemented by a solo dance performance by Andréa Araújo that educed a standing ovation.
