Brazilian summer at Studio Time Out

In July and August, Time Out studio hosts three concerts of Brazilian artists, two veterans – Marcos Valle and Mart’nália – and a new revelation of Brazilian music, Phill Veras.

With a career spanning some 50 years, Marcos Valle needs no introduction. He is one of the leading names of Brazilian popular music from the 1960s and early 70s, the songwriter responsible for the hit “Samba de Verão” and many others recorded by artists such as Elis Regina, Tim Maia, Roberto Carlos, Sarah Vaughan, Chicago and Dizzy Gillespie, for example. Some of his works have also been sampled by artists such as Marcelo D2, Cone Crew, Pusha-T and US rappers Jay Z and Kanye West. He returns to Portugal on 5 July for a concert in the Time Out Studio that promises to offer plenty of music to dance to.

Mart’Nália, the daughter of veteran Brazilian musician Martinho da Vila and singer Anália Mendonça (her name being a mixture of those of her parents), presents her latest work, at the Time Out Studio on 7 July. Nothing represents better the passionate heart of the Carioca (native of Rio de Janeiro) than to unite the poetry of Vinicius de Moraes with the music of Mart’nália, in an album that oozes the spirit of the city.

On August 10th, brazilian singer and musician Phill Veras, one of the new revelations of Brazilian music, is coming to Portugal for the first time to give a concert at the Time Out Studio, where he will be presenting his latest album, Alma. A leading light of the new MPB/Brazilian indie folk scene, with three albums under his belt, Veras has built up a huge group of fans with his music and has performed all across Brazil, including at the Rock in Rio festival.
