After five successful editions, the free concert-in-the-park PianoBotanica will be back at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on 9 September 2018. The star of the show is one of the most celebrated Brazilian musicians, the saxophonist Leo Gandelman. Worshipped by the mainstream public and by the fans of Brazilian Popular Music (MPB), Leo Gandelman oversteps the borders of classic and popular music through the quality of his saxophone.
Gandelman will be accompanied by Eduardo Farias, a revelation of the new crop of Brazilian music and one of the most requested musicians in the country. Eduardo Farias is a pianist, multi-instrumentalist, and also a teacher, music producer, arranger and orchestrator.
When asked about the significance of PianoBotanica’s 2018 edition, the Ambassador of Brazil to Singapore, H.E. Flávio Damico, said, “We are proud to continue to showcase one aspect of the Brazilian culture in Singapore with our annual concert in the Botanic Gardens. Upon experiencing some gems of our music, played by first-class musicians, I hope the audience will feel reinvigorated and inspired by the delicate beauty of the songs and the talent of the artists.”
The popular annual music event is expected to once again draw thousands of people to the lush grounds of the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the country. Everyone across the island is invited and encouraged to bring their own picnic mats, food and wine, bask in the lush greenery of the Botanic Gardens and enjoy a sample of the best in Brazilian music through the repertoire of Leo Gandelman and Eduardo Farias. Concert-goers can certainly expect a broad array of musical experiences as the two musicians move between classic and popular songs.
This concert is made possible by the Embassy of Brazil in Singapore, SATS-BRF, CBMM, Seara, Tramontina, Vale, Forship, Cariuma, Maracatu Cachaça, Suncaged Analytics, Xcellen and Tanora.
Venue: Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, Singapore Botanic Gardens
