“Oh minha paixão
o que foi que fez assim
pra ganhar meu coração…”
(Oh, my passion/what did you do/to win my heart this way)
Anyone who has a bit closer relationship with a Brazilian or attends Brazilian parties and homes, have heard of IVETE SANGALO, beloved singer considered by many the most popular artist in Brazil currently. Luckily, she is coming to the Bay Area for a live concert on Friday, August 9th, at the Fox Theater in Oakland.
Her strong voice, high beat, energetic music, and an embracing charisma, makes her personality and style being appreciated accross generations. Her style varies from axé music (from Bahia state, where Ivete was born) all the way to pop, balads and reggaes. In 1999, after five years of success as lead singer of Banda Eva, the beautiful singer from Juazeiro, Bahia, started her solo career and became one of the most important artists in Brazilian music. The singer has ten solo CDs released (not including compilations), four DVD’s and more than 15 million CDs and DVDs sold in Brazil and abroad.
This show will have many innovations: cameras will project images of Ivete and the public in the stage’s LED screen real-time, the dancers have new costumes, the repertoire is a mix of old hits and new songs, all chosen with participation of fans via Twitter.
The show’s name “Real Fantasia” is homonymous with Ivete’s tenth solo CD, released in October 2012. According to Ivete, “Real Fantasia is the name of one of the tracks, and became the name of the album and the tour because of what it represents. It’s a bit of a translation of my life, what I’m living. My reality is a fantasy, is music, is art, is the playful, is Carnival.”
