Join us for a lecture ending with a musical performance featuring renowned singer Adriana Calcanhotto. From Calcanhotto: "Certain poetic effects that seem new and contemporary to us have existed for a long time and have marked the western song. The Brazilian case is as complex as Brazil is, which encourages discussion about the extreme quality of popular poets, samba musicians, who in the vast majority have left works of great poetic stature that are still sung and loved to this day. For me, as a singer and songwriter, through these studies of the archeology of the popular song I am convinced that if there are two things that can change the world they are love and music."
