Anima from Brazil to perform Nov. 5 at Shrine to Music Museum The Brazilian ensemble Anima will trace the story of music in Brazil from its European roots in the Middle Ages to Brazilian traditional and popular music of today, when it performs at America's Shrine to Music Museum on the USD campus, Sunday afternoon, Nov. 5, at 2:30 p.m.
Anima, which is making its American debut tour in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil, features the diverse talents of six of the country's leading musicians from the worlds of jazz, classical, and traditional music.
Isa Taube, well-known singer of jazz and Brazilian popular music, is backed up by a wide variety of instruments, including Brazilian fiddles, recorders, 10-string guitar, harpsichord, and percussion.
The music features " a fusion of rhythms that has never gone that far," according to J�lio Maria, writing in the Jornal da Tarde. The New York Times called Dalga Larrondo "a brilliant percussionist" in 1996, when he soloed with the American Composers' Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York.
