An all-star benefit tribute to the music and culture of Brazil, Red Hot + Rio 2 salutes Samba Soul, the post-tropicália movement of the 70s that merged elements of North American soul music with Brazilian rhythms. Mixing samba with R&B, soul with baião, pioneering artists like Jorge Ben Jor and Tim Maia signaled a cultural awakening that changed the direction of Brazilian music forever. The concerts at BAM bring together the newest generation of Brazilian and international artists who represent the legacy of this influential musical style.

Featured artists: CéU, Curumin, Bebel Gilberto, José González, Otto
Backing band: Kassin +2, Moreno Veloso, Domenico, João Parahyba Sr. & son
Music Directors Kassin & Mario Caldato, Jr.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit BrazilFoundation’s AIDS-related projects.
