Sarau Carioca

Friday June 21 @ Noon + 6pm
Old Market Square


Sarau Carioca is a Winnipeg-based Brazilian duo composed of guitarist Marcos Martins and singer Luana Cunha.

Celebrating their love of samba and bossa nova, Sarau Carioca bring new interpretations to some of the pearls of Brazilian music, including compositions by Cartola, Tom Jobim, Noel Rosa, Vinicius de Moraes, Adoniran Barbosa, Baden Powell, Lupicínio Rodrigues, and Carlos Lyra, to name a few.

The themes of the artists’ work vary from everyday life situations to love stories, tragedy, hilarity, and the joy of being around the ones we love. Sarau Carioca invites you to come on a trip to the distant lands of the south, and to taste the flavours of this rich culture that they love and praise. Sarau Carioca is a tribute to the illustrious names of Brazilian popular music. Beautiful, pleasant, enthralling, and joyful, their music always enchants the audience.
