Carybé: The Colours of Bahia
3 June - 17 July 2015 | Mon-Fri 11am-6pm
Sala Brasil, Embassy of Brazil, 14-16 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5BL
The Embassy of Brazil presents a collection of 44 vibrant and eye-catching silk-screen works by Hector Julio Páride de Bernabó, better known as Carybé. Though born in Argentina, the artist lived for almost fifty years in the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia, portraying the daily life and religious syncretism of the region's people. Inspired by many different aspects of Bahian culture, especially those linked to the Afro-Brazilian religion of Candomblé, Carybé's work took Bahia to the outside world.

The Brazilian economy has been the subject of much discussion in the past few years, with The Economist deeming it front page worthy on a number of occasions.

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil
1 July 2015 | 6.30pm
45 Queen Caroline Street, London W6 9QH
An exclusive London concert – and a very rare reunion of two of Brazil's most charismatic singers and songwriters. Scroll back to the 60s, when Gil and Caetano were two of Brazil's biggest pop stars, leading lights of the provocative Tropicalia movement. Although both artists have individually filled concerts halls worldwide in the intervening years, to have them play together again in London is a real occasion – not only because of the history, but because these are two artists who continue to create music of genuine originality, that communicates directly with the heart and the soul.
