Brazil in The Gardens: Monica Salmaso, Guinga and Teco Cardoso

August 15 @ 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM PDT

Brazil In The Gardens Monica Salmaso, Guinga And Teco Cardoso

Every year some of Brazil’s greatest musicians gather in the redwoods of Cazadero for California Brazil Camp, and every year several faculty members venture down to the Gardens to share their mesmerizing music. This season’s concert is one for the ages, featuring the beloved Brazilian vocalist Monica Salmaso, who catapulted to renown with her 1995 album with guitarist Paulo Bellinati, Afro Sambas, which premiered Baden Powell’s and Vinícius de Moraes’ complete Afro Sambas collection. She’s joined by multi-instrumentalist Teco Cardoso, a brilliant improviser on saxophones and flutes known for his work with Dori Caymmi, Edu Lobo, Joyce, João Donato, Baden Powell, Rosa Passos and many others. Rounding out this extraordinary triumvirate is Guinga, a guitar maestro and composer whose songs have been recorded by Brazilian legends such as Elis Regina, Clara Nunes and Miúcha.
