The 8 p.m. performance marks her debut in the Magic City, but Calcanhotto is no stage novice. Since the 1980s, shes been an indelible artistic force in Brazil, spearheading the modern MPB (música popular Brasileira) movement via her haunting voice and bossa nova grooves. Always intensely poetic, Calcanhotto draws comparisons to Caetano Veloso, considered by some the Bob Dylan of Brazil. And dont worry even if you cant speak Portuguese, youll understand her lyrics simply by the timbre of her voice and the movement of the crowd.
