We have the top three picks for this Tuesday, and below there is a list of bars and lounges that are always a good option.
Cria @ Manouche Club (Jardim Botanico) – “Cria” is the name of the monthly meeting in which Leonardo Lichote, a music journalist for O Globo newspaper, talks to an artist about their creative endeavours, on-stage at Manouche, the intimate club in the basement of Casa Camolese.
The conversation is interspersed with songs from the invited artist’s back cataolgue. This month it is the turn of Jards Macalé. In the conversation of “Cria”, he will open up about his methods of composition, his background and influences – all illustrated with songs, in an evening as improvisational as Macalé’s music.
The evening begins at 9PM and tickets are between R$30-R$60.
Cria – Rua Jardim Botanico, 983 – Jardim Botanico

Cordel Negro are a band of musicians who are intent on creating a new sound, descended from the African rhythms and traditional melodies of Brazil’s past, but also brought right up to date.
This free event will trace the roots of Brazilian music with songs that journey through varying genres such as samba, choro, forró and carimbó. Things should get started at around 8PM. For those who want to learn a bit of forró dancing, there will be a class open at 7:30PM with the instructor João Gabriel Caldeira Pires from the group Forró New Roots.
