Kenia: The Sultry Sounds of Brazil

Jul 17, 2019 - Jul 17, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
City of Asylum
40 W. North Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Brazilian songstress Kenia returns to City of Asylum after delighting audiences last summer. She is renowned for her ability to translate the complex rhythms of her homeland into jazzy creations that embody the best of the Brazilian sound–deep and sultry, richly diverse, unexpectedly explosive.

Kenia will take you on a musical tour from big named standards (think Gershwin, Lennon and McCartney), to works by contemporary composers (Romero Lubambo, Luiz Simas), and finally to song written for Kenia by Antonio Adolfo and Ivan Lins. The music ranges from nimble vocalese to jazz-edged forró, a style from Brazil’s Northeast and includes many high-energy tributes to influential Brazilian jazz musicians.
