Fogo Vivo – Living Flame

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. A choreographer, teacher, and performer from Salvador da Bahia, Rosangela is a truly masterful dancer whose artistry, power, and presence captivate audiences internationally. Samba Fogo is honored to present her in Fogo Vivo.

Fogo Vivo will also feature master percussionist Jorge Alabe from Rio De Janeiro. Jorge is recognized as a father of Brazilian percussion drumming in the United States, having traveled the globe with the world-famous samba group “Oba Oba” for 15 years before settling in the U.S. as a teacher and performer. His singular virtuosity is a must-see as he joins us on stage.

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.
