ArtPower! at UC San Diego says
Come join us for a jam sesh with the incredible Brazilian superstar Thalma de Freitas!

ArtPower! presents a FREE interactive open rehearsal and lecture for students with Brazilian singer-songwriter Thalma de Freitas in collaboration with Kamau Kenyatta, exploring the lyrics of Brazilian music. Thalma will be making her North-American debut with ArtPower! the following evening in a nearly sold-out public performance. This event is open to students of all majors.

Brazilian singer, songwriter, and actress, Thalma de Freitas was born into a home filled with music and creativity. She is the daughter of maestro Laercio de Freitas, a renowned pianist, arranger and composer. Her rich musical upbringing proved to be instrumental in shaping De Freitas's ear at an early age. As singer and songwriter in Rio’s legendary big band Orquestra Imperial, De Freitas’ silky and sensual voice captured the very essence of samba.

Performing compositions from the terreiros of Candomble (birthplace of the modern samba) to Ivan Lins jazz-tinged statements, De Freitas’ highly personal vision will be paying special attention to the social issues that her country's music describes. She will be our enchanting guide to "AfroBraziliance".
