Brazilian Night out! : 14/03/13

Brazilian Night out! : 14/03/13

This  multi-­-talented  duo,  consisting  of  Grammy  nominated Fernanda  Porto and critically  acclaimed  Christianne  Neves  performs regularly  in  Brazil  and internationally.  They  play  an  array  of musical  instruments  while  showcasing  top hits  by  Fernanda  Porto, such  as,  ‘Só  tinha  de  ser  com  você’,  ‘Tudo  de  bom’, ‘Sambassim’ and  the  operatic/lyrical  ‘1999’.  Also  featured  are  Fernanda’s  unique electronic  reinterpretations  of  Brazilian  modern  classics,  as  well  as music  from  her latest  CD,  ‘Auto-­-retrato’  (Self-­-Portrait)  (EMI-2009).  
Fernanda   sings,   plays   alto   and   soprano   saxophone,   electric   and   acoustic   guitar,  keyboards  and  percussion.  Christianne handles  two  keyboards  and  acoustic piano,  as  well  as  cavaquinho, percussion  and  double-­-bass.  In  addition,  there  is  a  an  electronic programming.

It  is  not  surprising  that  the  artists  have  been described  in  the press  as  “The  Duo  that  is  worth  30”  (  Journal Gazeta do Povo/Curitiba ), said  reviewer  Juliana  Gueraldi : “They   may   be   a Duo,   but   together,   Fernanda and Christianne can be equivalent  to a group of 30 instruments”.  The  repertoire  includes not  only  a selection  of  tracks  from  Fernanda’s  CDs,  but  also reinterpretations   of   gems   of Brazilian   Popular   Music   such   as   ‘Roda   Viva’  by   Chico  Buarque,  with  whom Fernanda  duetted  in her  ‘Giramundo’ album  (Trama-2004);  Desde  que o Samba é samba,  by Caetano Veloso,  featured  in  Fernanda’s live  DVD  (EMI – 2006); Corações  a mil,  by  Gilberto  Gil, featured  in  Fernanda Porto’s  live  DVD  (EMI  - 2006);  Sampa,  by  Caetano  Veloso  and  No more  Blues  (Chega  de Saudade)  by Tom  Jobim.
