2 December 2021 from 6.30 pm aperitif – 8.30 pm live – GRIMALDI FORUM – THURSDAY LIVE SESSIONS – JOAO SELVA – A journey around the world! The son of a shepherd from Ipanema, Carioca João Selva grew up in a community of former convicts and converted artists. It was under the benevolent gaze of Wanda Sá – one of the icons of bossa nova – that as a child he sang his first guitar notes. Influenced by his father, a music lover and collector of all kinds of records, he immersed himself in the practice of Brazilian music and at the age of 18 began a career as a traveling artist that would take him to Lyon many years later. His solo adventure, the result of a collaboration with prolific producer Bruno Patchworks (Voilaaa, David Walters, The Bongo Hop), is a dive into the tropicalist universe of the 70s that mixes samba, soul, disco and vintage funk. His second album, Navegar, celebrates the music of the Black Atlantic, visibly navigating between the Northeast, Cape Verde and the Caribbean.
