Brasil Summerfest With Gilsons

July 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Presented in association with Brasil Summerfest

For the past 13 years, Brasil Summerfest has brought the music and flavor of Brazil to New York City with an array of audio, arts, and special events that highlight the beauty and diversity of South America’s biggest exporter of cultural excellence. Brazilian Music Award-winning trio Gilsons are a family band of the highest pedigree. Francisco, João, and José Gil are respectively the sons and grandsons of the legendary Gilberto Gil. The band blends pop rock, samba, rap and Bahian rhythms, but draws particular inspiration from MPB, Gilberto’s chief métier. Following a strong run of singles, including the hits “Várias Queixas,” and “Devagarinho”, the band released their debut album, Pra Gente Acordar, which was subsequently nominated for the Latin GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Pop Album in Portuguese. The trio has participated in major festivals throughout Brasil, including Lollapalooza and Rock in Rio, but this performance represents both their U.S. and Lincoln Center debut.

Run time: approximately 2 hours
