Rhythms of Northeast Brazil with Forró Brasa
“Les Étoiles Nuits d’Afrique” Series featured by La Fabrique Culturelle and Télé-Québec
Winner of numerous grants, prizes and distinctions, Diogo Ramos is a multi-talented artist who loves to explore rhythms of all kinds. Inspired by the Tropicália movement that celebrates the universality of music, this singer-songwriter-composer-producer and guitar virtuoso from São Paulo is willing to try anything. That same finesse with which he was able to adapt Gilles Vigneault songs to bossa nova, which can be heard on his 2018 album Samba sans frontières, is just as evident on his latest album Raro Efeito (2021), a vibrant fusion of hip-hop, electro and samba funk.
