Human life is surrounded by rhythm from biological frequencies such as heartbeat and breathing patterns, to music, dance, rhythms of nature and urban life. This concert will encompass rhythm in a broad sense that goes beyond the definition of musical styles and beats.

Rhythm is an energy-packed, one-of-a-kind performance that will undoubtedly captivate the audience with exhilarating Brazilian music, with songs by Gilberto Gil, Alicia Keys, Daniela Mercury, Maria Gandú, Lenine, and Milton Nascimento among others. This award-winning all female vocal ensemble, accompanied by superb musicians, Brazilian percussionists and dancers will once more take the audience on a journey through emotions, rhythms and culture.
