It was really excellent. Luciana Sousa was nominated for a Grammy and was at Binghamton University singing for us instead of attending the awards ceremony. I wasn't familiar with Romero Lubambo, but he was also outstanding. The two artists were in sync in both their music and entertaining banter. There was a Q&A session after the concert, but we couldn't stay for it.

OMG I think I died & went to heaven!

They were every bit as special as I knew they would be and MORE!

As superb as Luciana was, for me the real treat was Romero & his guitar playing. Not only would he leave my jaw dropping over his virtuousity, he projects such heart-felt joy and warmth with his playing! And the syncope between the two artists was just a marvel!

There was a fun 30 min Q & A after the concert.

Sadly, even giving the tickets away couldn't fill the concert. Such a disappointment to see how under appreciated excellent music is in our area.

Thanks for the heads-up. Judith and I will be there. This is something we will certainly enjoy because my mother moved to Rio in the 1980s and we have spent some time there. Free or very inexpensive cultural entertainment is the rule in Rio, especially around Lapa where she lives and this concert will recreate the ambiance for us.

I am a HUGE fan of both of these artists and already have my ticket, but wanted to pass this exciting opportunity along to anyone who might be interested. Look up both Luciana Souza and/or Romero Lubambo on YouTube to sample their music. They are simply SUPERB and I can't recommend them highly enough! Pass along to others as this is such a low cost opportunity for an awesome afternoon of entertainment!

Come enjoy a Grammy-worthy afternoon with nominee
LUCIANA SOUZA...
and pay what you wish!

The Anderson Center for the Performing Arts is excited to present 2013 Grammy nominee Luciana Souza and jazz guitarist Romero Lubambo in Brazilian Duos on Sunday, February 10, at 3 p.m. in Watters Theater. And we are equally excited to offer for the first time ever, an opportunity to "pay what you wish."

Souza has been nominated for a Grammy four times for best jazz vocals. She currently has two albums nominated for a Grammy - The Book of Chet in the Best Jazz Vocal category and Duos III in the Best Latin Jazz category.

Lubambo is a gifted guitarist whose unique sound unites the style and rhythms of his Brazilian heritage with the American jazz tradition. According to one critic, he is one of the "best practitioners of his craft in the world today."

The "pay what you wish" special pricing allows you to let us know what you think is a fair price for this concert. Minimum donation $1.00 per ticket. Tickets were originally priced at $20 general public; $15 BU faculty/staff and seniors; and $10 for students.

So come enjoy a cold winter afternoon at the Anderson Center with hot Brazilian jazz when Luciana Souza and Romero Lubambo join forces in Brazilian Duos on Sunday, February 10.

For tickets and information: 607-777-ARTS oranderson.binghamton.edu

"This tour engagement of Luciana Souza is funded through Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation's Jazz Touring Network with support from the National Endowment for the Arts".
