Tuesday 22 August 2023 – Ricardo Bona’s Panoramas do Brasil

Brazilian virtuoso accordionist Ricardo Bona has taken Australia by storm since he settled in Brisbane in 2017. Performing internationally with award-winning ensemble Mzaza, and inspiring a new generation of musicians around the country through his constant touring and featured appearances in festival and concert programs, Ricardo now leads his exquisite ensemble in a celebration of ‘musica brasileira’, and will also be joined by professional dancers Ju and Rafa.

While popular throughout Europe for decades, the accordion found popularity in Brazil in the 1950s, and has become one of the most common instruments in the country, its expressive and unique sounds heard in the beautiful melodies played in ‘choro’ music, and then becoming the featured instrument in the energetic ‘forro’ style of music in Brazil’s north-east.

This program, created especially for the Lord Mayor’s City Hall Concert, introduces the audience to a musical panorama that shares the accordion’s journey throughout Brazil’s contemporary musical history, from delicate melodies in polkas and classically-inspired pieces by Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim, and then across the vast musical landscape to joyous, rhythmic songs from the great forro and baiao composers Luis Gonzaga and Dominguinhos, giving the listener an exceptional musical experience.
