Luciana Souza with Cyro Baptista & Romero Lubambo
Saturday, January 23, 2010 | 8:00 pm
A native of São Paulo, Souza is a three-time Grammy-nominee whose voice is almost inhumanly pure, “trac[ing] a landscape of emotions that knows no boundaries” (Entertainment Weekly). Returning to Duke after an entrancing 2008 show, Souza’s piercing, crystalline vocals are backed by Baptista, who’s cut percussion for David Byrne and Yo-Yo Ma, and Lubambo, who by now needs no introduction.
“Souza continues her captivating journey as a uniquely talented vocalist who organically crosses genre borders. Her music soulfully reflects, wistfully regrets, romantically woos, joyfully celebrates.”
Audience members are invited to attend a reception with Luciana Souza, immediately following the performance.
Reception will be outside the Reynolds Theater.
