Fogo Vivo – Living Flame @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Apr 25 @ 7:30 pm
Fogo Vivo - Living Flame @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center

Samba Fogo proudly presents: Fogo Vivo (Living Flame), an
evening of live music and dance, ON FIRE. Drawing on rich Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo ignites the stage as they weave traditional and contemporary dance forms, fire spinning, and diverse live music. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, backed by horn players, a string quintet, and the largest drum line Samba Fogo has ever featured on stage – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil.

Fogo Vivo (Living Flame) will feature several very special guests, including world-renowned dance artist Rosangela Silvestre. Between performances in Montreal, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, and Tokyo, Rosangela will be stopping in Salt Lake City to
perform a few pieces in Samba Fogo’s concert. A truly masterful dancer, Rosangela has a powerful stage presence and stellar dance technique.

Fogo Vivo will also feature special guest, master percussionist Jorge Alabe from Rio De Janeiro. Mr. Alabe was one of the first drummers to bring Brazilian percussion and samba drumming to the United States, traveling the globe with the world-famous Samba group, “Oba Oba.” Jorge is a father of Brazilian percussion in the US and is an extremely powerful drummer and performer.

In total, Fogo Vivo will feature a cast of over 40 talented musicians, dancers, drummers, singers, and fire spinners, coming together to inspire, excite, and uplift the hearts of
Utah audiences and create Samba Fogo’s largest and most elaborate concert of 2019.
