Suggested donation $15/ $20
Brazilian composer Thiago Thiago de Mello will be coming to Inner Fields to perform his beautiful and powerful songs about the sounds, myths, legends and stories of the Amazon Rainforest, where the songwriter grew up and continues to return each year. From a family of artists, poets and musicians - he is the nephew of the three time Grammy nominated Gaudêncio Thiago de Mello (1933-2013) - Thiago Thiago "combines Brazil's rich literary traditions and African-inspired rhythms, such as samba, forró and pagode, with jazz, rock and electronica" (Tim Wilkins, WBGO). This intimate performance at Inner Fields will be an invitation to a journey inside the Amazon Rainforest, with food and stories to share.
