An electrifying evening of Brazilian Samba Soul as the legendary Marcos Valletakes the stage with opening performances by the one and only Azymuth and Brainstory.

In 1963 at the tender age of twenty Marcos Valle managed to record over a dozen albums in Brazil debuting with Samba Demais. Overnight Marcos was a success. The boy from Ipanema was suddenly the star of the Andy Williams Show coast to coast across the States. Probably his biggest triumph was for entering the Guinness Book of Records as the only artist to have a track in the Billboard Top Forty with three different versions of the same song at the same time including a version by Frank Sinatra. The song “Samba de Verao” became a bossa nova standard.

Born from the vibrant Rio de Janeiro music scene of the early seventies, Azymuth, with their innovative blend of funk, jazz, and samba, set the stage for a new era of Brazilian music. Collaborating with Valle on his seminal album “Previsão do Tempo” and providing the funky backbone to Hyldon’s breakout record “Na Rua, Na Chuva, Na Fazenda,” Azymuth’s founding member Alex Malheiros brings with him two incredible musicians in Kiko Continentino and Renato Massa and their unparalleled groove to this historic concert, bridging continents and cultures with their soulful rhythms.
