Lunch Break Concert

Thursday, September 25, 2014
1 – 2pm
10th Avenue Square - On the High Line at West 17th Street

Enjoy your lunch on the High Line while listening to the sweet sounds of local musicians. A diverse roster of musical groups will fill the 10th Avenue Square with folk, rock, and rhythm & blues.

Hailing from Fortaleza, the vivacious contralto Liliana Araujo belts out over the forró power trio: accordion, zabumba and triangle, main instruments in her band, a festive style that resembles country music with a Brazilian flair. Owner of a soulful voice and palpable authenticity, she is one of the latest brazilian darlings of New York. Forró (fo-HO), born in the heart of the Northeast of Brazil, is inspired by the lives of the working class and the energy generated by a long week of back-breaking work chasing down runaway cattle, tilling fields or laboring in the sugar and flour mills. Liliana maintains the traditions of forró by following and honoring in the footsteps of the old masters but also infusing a contemporary touch in her music. Forró is just a celebration of life, love, friends, family and community! What are you waiting for? Let’s forrozar!
