One of the few venues that does not rip you off with way overpriced drinks

Bring a jacket. It often gets chilly at the Greek theater.

The opening act Brothers of Brazil were not my cup of tea. Very energetic but way too much screaming and lyrics were impossible to understand. Daniela was terrific! ... continued

Description

Born in the historic city of Salvador da Bahia, nearly two decades have passed since Daniela Mercury emerged as an Artist of a singular musical genre. Exploding in Brazil with her mammoth seminal album, Canto da Cidade, Mercury has never been satisfied with formulaic success, and she has constantly pushed at and redefined the boundaries of Brazilian popular music. Bold, curious, and endlessly inventive, she stirs and heats the cauldron that is the astounding diversity of Brazilian music.

Canibália is much more than Mercury’s boldest and most radical new approach to Brazilian popular music. It is the creation of a movement intended to follow through from the birth of the Modernist Movement in Brazil and the internationally resonant movements of Tropicalia. By interweaving Brazil’s rich and vibrant cultural past with current and futuristic international trends, Mercury forges a new history and a new chapter in her career.

Mercury says, “Canibália is an embrace, a swallow of Tropicália, the Clube da Esquina and everything that has since been created in the arts in Brazil since the ‘Semana de 22’ [‘Semana de Arte Moderna de 1922’; the Week of Modern  Art]. I yearn for the liberty that comes from this anthropophagic movement, from the Cannibalist Manifesto of Oswald de Andrade and its practice by Mario de Andrade, who said that these mixtures reinforce our Brazilian identity.”

In the past year alone, Daniela Mercury and has sold-out in over 20 cities worldwide, and has performed Canibália for over 7 million people. Mercury’s performances embody a beautiful and explosive celebration of the past, present and future of Latin music, and her remarkable artistry, energy and joyous sensuality transform every one of her concerts into an exhilarating night at Carnaval.

“Throughout my life, I have always had this cannibalist and anthropophagic spirit,” says Mercury. With Canibália, her most ambitious spirit comes to the fore!
