Samba Fogo Spring Concert: CHAMA

An Evening of Live Music and Dance, ON FIRE April 27, 28 & 29, 2017: Samba Fogo proudly presents Chama (Flame). Drawing on rich cultural concepts and mythology, Samba Fogo ignites the stage as they weave traditional and contemporary dance forms, fire spinning, and sundry live music. The concert will premiere several original musical compositions, sound scores, and high-energy choreography, performed by a cast of over 40 spectacular artists. The live band for this year’s concert includes a vocal quartet, horn line, and string quintet, paired with the largest drum line Samba Fogo has ever featured on stage – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil. Chama will feature several very special guests, including world-renowned dance artist Rosangela Silvestre. Between performances in London, Montreal, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, and Tokyo, Rosangela will be stopping in Salt Lake City to perform a solo in Samba Fogo’s concert. A truly masterful dancer, Rosangela has a powerful stage presence and stellar dance technique. Chama will also feature special guest Mark Lamson, master percussionist from San Diego, California, and creator of the now world-famous album, “Bata Ketu”, acknowledged by The Smithsonian. Guest vocalists, soprano Kristin Jensen and tenor Jerry Maymi, will join Samba Fogo singer Solange Gomes and singer-guitarist George Brown, who hail from São Paulo, and Brasilia, Brazil. With Marco Blackmore on saxophone, Joe Chisolm on trombone, John McNeil on trumpet, Christine Gundayao and Jordan Hess on violin, Danae Snow on viola, Caitlin Andrew on cello, Hazel Staten on bass, and Liam Snelling on guitar, Chama will feature a cast of over 40 talented musicians, dancers, drummers, singers, and fire spinners, coming together to inspire, excite, and uplift the hearts of Utah audiences. Tickets to Chama are $20 for students and $25 for general public. Tickets are available online at artsaltlake.org, at all ArtTix locations, or by calling 801-355-ARTS. This event is recommended for ages 8+. No babes in arms. Content is suitable for all ages. This presentation of Chama (Flame) is supported by the ZAP (Zoo, Arts & Parks) program and the Salt Lake Arts Council. The performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Jeanne Wagner Theatre in the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center on April 27, 28 & 29.


Volunteer Month

We in Utah understand the value of service and the impact it has on our communities. Utah consistently ranks number one in the country for volunteerism, but less than fifty percent of our citizens volunteer. April is National Volunteer Month, and we challenge each of you to find a way to volunteer in your community. To find volunteer opportunities, visit userve.utah.gov/volunteer-opportunities.
