Deep Cuts and Classic Covers With Djavan at the Fillmore This Friday
For his stop in South Florida, the 61-year-old singer is unlikely to concentrate on material from Ária because his expat Brazilian fans aren't likely to be familiar with these most recent efforts.
But he will be playing with the same band that helped him record the disc: Torcuato Mariano on electric guitar, André Vasconcellos on bass, and Marcos Suzano on percussion. So expect pared-down renditions of classics from his repertoire as well as a few better-known selections from the new disc such as Gilberto Gil's "Palco." And considering Djavan's reputation as a showman, his status on the international jazz scene, and the testimony of his huge homeland following, you should also expect the Fillmore to overflow with pure party atmosphere and sing-along moments.
