Mario Bakuna and Edmundo Carneiro are delighted to perform the show “Where Rio de Janeiro meets Bahia” at 38 Riv. The album recorded in Paris-France brings in the core of its research the Afro-Brazilian rhythms from 'Recôncavo Baiano' as well as the charm and subtlety of Bossa Nova.
The album is a journey to Rio de Janeiro, the birthplace of Bossa Nova, and Bahia, the city that best represents the powerful African influence in Brazilian music. Mario Bakuna and Edmundo Carneiro integrate the rhythmic roots of Brazilian music and its sophisticated harmonies in a very special duo performance - acoustic guitar & voice and percussion - celebrating great Brazilian composers like Dorival Caymmi and Tom Jobim.
In the show "Where Rio de Janeiro Meets Bahia", Mario and Edmundo promise to transport the audience to a place where the real and the imaginary are experienced and enhanced by poetry and music.
