Brazil lands at Circulart with a very representative delegation: 12 companies from different music segments. Besides that, three artists/bands are part of official showcases’ lineup. The event will take place from November 2-5 in Medellín, Colombia, with the support of Brasil Music Exchange (BME) – a music internationalization project promoted by a partnership between the Brasil, Música & Artes (BM&A) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) – heads the country’s presence.
The Brazilian delegation includes companies that work with: booking, management, cultural production, recording studios, digital distribution and music labels. They represent artists such as Emicida, Rael, Liniker e os Caramelows, Chico Pinheiro, Aláfia and As Bahias e Cozinha Mineira, among others. The programming of showcases counts on the singers Renata Rosa, Xênia França and the band ATR – Aeromoças e Tenistas Russas. They will perform on November 3 at 7 pm and 8h30 pm and on November 4 at 10h45 pm respectively.
According to Leandro Ribeiro, BME project manager, Circulart is gaining importance since it is a business hub for the region. “It is the second time we participate in Circulart. The amount of companies we are bringing increased from 7 to 12. Latin America is a very important market for the Brazilian music. Colombia is also a special partner since we have cultures with many similarities and we want to improve this exchange,” he says.
He also recalls that Brazil was well represented in Medellín in September, during La Fiesta del Libro y de la Cultura. Our country was guest of honor and eight bands, including names like Dona Onete, Larissa Luz and Liniker e os Caramelows, performed for the Colombian public. According to the organizers, more than 700 thousand people participated in the party.
