Wednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Letuce na de Dois takes the stage at Barzinho, the chic new restaurant/club in Lapa, for one of their two performances this month. Their show will feature the duo’s new material, which ranges from pop to retro pagode. The two artists have been playing to crowds all over Brazil and Europe since 2008.
Their unique sound and charismatic performances have earned them recognition from MTV and Multishow. Their creativity and artistic visions have set Leticia Novaes, a multifaceted-artist and Lucas Vasconcellos, an amazing musician and instrumentalist, apart from other musicians, creating an original identity and sound.
