Pedagogies of Teatra Encounter
Pocket show by Assucena, featuring songs from the album Minha voz e eu. A talk between voice, distortion, melody and technology. Assucena presents her musical intimacy from the study of timbres and sensitive manifestations of her voice. “My voice is my freedom’s concrete and ethereal metaphor,” she says. Through beats, acoustic and electric guitar, the authorial repertoire blends with the tradition of MPB, including names such as Gonzaguinha, Caymmi and Gal. Tradition meets the contemporary.
Assucena is a singer-songwriter. She became well-known for her work with band As Baías, with which she was nominated twice for the Latin Grammy (2019 | 2020) and won two categories in the 29th Brazilian Music Award. Born and raised in Bahia’s inland, she works her artistic identity based on influences of music from Bahia – especially Tropicalism – as well as the most varied aspects of MPB, in compositions and interpretations that dialogue with different rhythms.
