Preview: Zeca Pagodinho @ Eventim Apollo (London, 29th November 2016)


If you’re a four-time Grammy winner, who performed during the Olympic opening ceremony, can boast a thirty-year-long career and considered as one of the brightest samba stars, you shouldn’t need any introduction. But, unfortunately, that’s not the case for Zeca Pagodinho, an artist so popular in his native Brazil as much as overlooked in Europe. Suffice to say that, the last time that the singer/songwriter from Irajà (a neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro) played in the UK was ten years ago.

For all these reasons, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t miss what will go on stage at Eventim Apollo on the 29th of November. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first samba recording (‘Pelo Telefone’ played by Donga), Zeca Pagodinho will come back to London and make up for lost time. He will lead you through a journey in the history of the traditional Brazilian style, but also introduce you to his latest work titled Ser Humano.

Hopefully, you won’t have to wait for another ten years to enjoy Zeca’s next performance, but still better to be far-sighted and don’t miss the forthcoming chance.
