There is something about Brazilian music that can cheer you up for hours on end. Perhaps it’s the warm rhythmic sound of the drums, the melancholic yet seductive sound of its bossa nova tunes, or maybe it’s the catchy movements of samba. In any case it can lift anyone's mood up, and This is Brasil does not fail to deliver.
This is Brasil is a fantastic journey to the Amazonian country
From the beginning the atmosphere is nothing but welcoming. When one of the dancers uttered the words 'I invite you to my land, a place that sets fire to your heart,' it seemed like everyone's hearts were already beating fast in anticipation to what was coming. Despite the expected samba and bossa nova songs, This is Brasil succeeded in surprising us. The show gracefully combines an outstanding musical performance with jaw-dropping acrobatics one would only dream of seeing in a circus act.
The show mixes the talent of musicians, dancers, acrobats, football geniuses and a good dose of charisma. As if this wasn't enough, the connection between the performers is so natural that at times it feels like we've been invited to their private carnival. But the highlight of the night was the unforgettable Paloma Gomes, whose voice echoes in our minds long after the show has ended. Particularly memorable is her version of Mas que nada which got us singing even if we didn't know or remembered the lyrics. Other great classics delivered by the band were Zoom Zoom Zoom and Sergio Mendes' well-known Magalenha.
This is Brasil is a fantastic journey to the Amazonian country which is enjoyed through its music, its football, its carnivals, its capoeira, and Brazilians’ general passion for life, the latter of which is so contagious that you won't be able leave the theatre without a big, honest smile.
