Experience Brazil’s most forward thinking young artists in this rare double bill featuring singers and multi-instrumentalists Rodrigo Amarante and Ava Rocha. Rodrigo Amarante is known for singing in the seminal bands Los Hermanos and Little Joy, as well as being the Emmy-nominated voice behind the theme song for the hit Netflix series “Narcos.” He joins Ava Rocha, one of the leading voices of the post-tropicalia avant-garde movement. She was recently featured at New York’s GlobalFest.
This event is part of Brasil Summerfest, the country’s largest contemporary Brazilian music & arts festival.
She was also awarded with APCA as best new artist and was indicated by Spotify as one of the 15 artists to be followed.
Currently in studio mixing her next album that will be released in 2018, Ava recalls classic Tropicália with a punk rock twist, psychedelia and pop.
With a great and impressive repertoire and stage presence, Ava was able to travel all over Brazil and worldwide, impacting audiences in Berlin (Festival Wassermusik), New York (globalFEST / Brasil Summerfest), Washington DC (Kennedy Center), Mexico City (Nrmal Fest), Bogota (Boogaloop), Medellín (Altavoz Fest) among others.
