Djavan at Noites Carioca in Rio de Janeiro

originally uploaded by alexdecarvalho.

Djavan is a leading contemporary singer in Brazil, along with Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento, Jorge ben Jor, Chico Buarque de Hollanda and Vinicius de Moraes.

On January 15th Djavan gave a fantastic live performance at the the Sugar Loaf, at the Noites Carioca event. About 2,000 people gathered on the Morro da Urca, the first stop on the way to the Sugar Loaf, to watch Djavan perform his greatest hits. Afterwards, the amphiteater turned into a nightclub with  a DJ playing techno, house and remixed samba.

The nighttime view of Rio was breath taking. In particular, the view of the Christ on Corcovado as the moon set beside it was amazing. Noites Carioca runs on weekends during the summer months and is one of the best options for going out in Rio.

Update: Djavan will hold a concert at Cite de la Musique in Paris on the 26th of March ... don't miss it! Maria Rita, a great female MPB artist, will also sing at the Cite de la Musique on the 20th of March.

Nicely put Alex !
I've been listening to Djavan since his very first duet together with Stevie Wonder playing the harmonica in "Samuraï"...
