About this show

Critics in Bahia, the womb of the Brazilian artistic imagination, have called Pedro Moraes "the next step in Brazilian song." That step is both forward and backtracking, like so many musical throwbacks in genres from hip-hop to indie rock. In Moraes' case, he's reviving the "Musica Popular Brasileira" of the '70s and '80s, but following a meandering route to find waypoints wherever in the wide world they may be….Live on stage, Moraes contorts and cavorts like a Brazilian David Byrne with a better and blacker samba shake and James Brown glide, not to mention a more manly and mellifluous vibrato.
