Samba Fogo proudly presents: Fogo Vivo (Living Flame), an evening of live music and dance, ON FIRE. Drawing on rich Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo ignites the stage as they weave traditional and contemporary dance forms, fire spinning, and diverse live music. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, backed by horn players, a string quintet, and 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. Fogo Vivo (Living Flame) will feature several very special guests, including world-renowned dance artist Rosangela Silvestre. Between performances in Montreal, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, and Tokyo, Rosangela will be stopping in Salt Lake City to perform a few pieces in Samba Fogo’s concert. A truly masterful dancer, Rosangela has a powerful stage presence and stellar dance technique. Fogo Vivo will also feature special guest, master percussionist Jorge Alabe from Rio De Janeiro. Mr. Alabe was one of the first drummers to bring Brazilian percussion and samba drumming to the United States, traveling the globe with the world-famous Samba group, “Oba Oba.” Jorge is a father of Brazilian percussion in the US and is an extremely powerful drummer and performer. In total, Fogo Vivo 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 and create Samba Fogo’s largest and most elaborate concert of 2019.

What is Independent Bookstore Day? Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different! There are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online. Why celebrate independent bookstores? Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. Come get your indie on!
