Détails de l'événement

Projection of « Viola & Violão Em Terras de São Sebastião » (Portuguese version with English subtitles)

«In the 1920s, it used to be said that the guitar was the amplifier of the Brazilian soul. Almost a century later, the expression still holds very true.

In this musical lecture, we present a very specific vision of the guitar’s trajectory in Brazilian society.

We went back in time to trace the ancestors of our guitars and landed in the 1950s; this historical itinerary took place in a very privileged setting: the city of Rio de Janeiro. The great guitarists are, of course, here, as well as the art they produced – songs and the different instrumental genres of our music». Marcia Taborda, speaker, professional guitarist and professor at the UFRI (Rio de Janeiro Federal University).

The movie projection will be followed by a discussion with the speaker.
