Music Without Borders: Diogo Nogueira + Freshlyground

June 30, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Diogo Nogueira – Chicago Debut
Millennium Park welcomes 30 year old Diogo Nogueira, one of Brazil’s rising stars of samba and a 2008 Latin Grammy Award-nominee for Best New Artist. A native of Rio de Janiero, Nogueira performs the samba-canção, a more melodic variation of the samba, full of romantic lyrics that wax poetic about love, music, soccer, and an endless infatuation with Rio.

Freshlyground – Chicago Debut
With band members hailing from South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe, Freshlyground makes their Chicago debut in Millennium Park, seamlessly blending folk, jazz, blues, and indie-rock with traditional African beats. With four celebrated albums, an MTV Award and a collaboration with Shakira in the 2010 World Cup, Freshlyground has established their place on the international music map.
