WE TRULY BELIEVE THAT MUSIC CONNECTS AND INSPIRES PEOPLE TO TRANSCEND BOUNDARIES AND THIS IS THE SPIRIT BEHIND THE BRAZILIAN SUMMER SESSIONS.
Thanks to the occurrence of so many talents that enables its continual renovation, the musical production of Brazil today is a fortunate result of celebrative forms that have evolved into sophisticated genres. The Brazilian popular music is bouncy, chameleonic and enterprising and tremendously alive and in constant reinvention, being one of the greatest music of the whole globe.
In the last 4 years, the Brazilian Summer Sessions Music Festival has been presenting a taste of the best of the actual Brazilian music to the Dutch audience. Concerts by important artists coming directly from Brazil, jam sessions with Brazilian beats, brand new documentary films about Brazilian music, photo and video installations, Dj’s parties and actings. The purpose of the festival is to offer a deeper outlook on Brazilian music, its variety of genres and the context in which it is made. And plus: a ground to party!!!!
In 2011, the project is finding many obstacles to financing itself and only a minimum program is been offered to the public in june and july. Although presenting the same quality of the previous years, it has decreased the number of activities in consequence of a significant lack of resourses. The project warns to the emergency of solutions for its continuation or this will be its last year despite the efforts of the organizors. Unfortunately, due to the present cultural crises in Holland, it won’t be an isolated case.
