Sunday brings a tribute to southern Brazil in Brasil Music Club in Russia
A very exciting Sunday to celebrate the culture of Southern Brazil: this was how the Brasil Music Club programming continued in Russia. Even after the elimination of the Brazilian and Russian teams, the audience enjoyed the gastronomy and the music of our country in the Powerhouse Moscow. The project is carried out by Brasil, Música & Artes (BM&A) in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) through the Brasil Music Exchange (BME) program.
In the early afternoon, Florianopolis’ chef Alysson Muller prepared a typical menu: barbecue on the stick with arroz de carreteiro (a mixture of rice, beef jerky and onions prepared in one of many stops made by cattle drovers on the road) and farofa (toasted manioc flour). Following that, the band Yangos performed for an attentive audience surprised for knowing a rhythm that is little diffused even in Brazil. The quartet is known for working regional Gaucho music in a contemporary way, having performed in Latin America, the United States and Europe.
“The show was amazing, the audience got engaged. It is very important to be here today presenting the music of Rio Grande do Sul to people from all over the world, which is always our main goal. This visit to Russia also allowed us to tour in Portugal”, says keyboardist César Casara.
Brasil Music Club’s programming continues in Moscow until the end of the World Cup. On Tuesday (10), the Northern Brazil takes over Powerhouse: Chef Felipe Schaedler prepares a dish of rice with shrimp and tucupi (an amazon plant) to accompany the show of Combo Cordeiro band.
7:00pm – Combo Lamb + Chef Felipe Schaedler (dinner starts to be served at 6pm)
7:00pm – Saulo Duarte + Chef Guga Rocha (dinner starts to be served at 6pm)
7:00pm – Curumin singer
