Ambassador of the multi-coloured music of Brazil.
Bassist, guitarist and singer Breno Virícimo (1988) is no stranger to Music Meeting Festival audiences. The Brazilian musician played here in 2019 with his group Roda da Holanda. Roda da Holanda is an informal yet extremely swinging Brazilian concept where musicians play samba around a table while the audience dances around them.
All the colours and shades
Virícimo has a feeling for all the colours and shades of the rich music of Brazil: from 'música popular brasileira' to 'bossa nova' and the more experimental genres. He moved to Amsterdam to study contrabass. There, he heads the new platform Olaiá Music, with the help of Lilian ‘Zuco 103’ Vieira amongst others, with whom he regularly posts new videos on YouTube to showcase emerging artists on the Brazilian scene in the Netherlands.
Breno was recorded during Music Meeting Festival in 2021. Get to know him by checking out the Music Meetup Podcast and Music Meeting Session with Gabriel Milliet, the Music Meeting Concert by Cantorias, the Music Meeting Talks interview and read the article 'Breno Virícimo: Connector from Brazil.'
