Carnaval del Pueblo returns
Alongside Mexican and Bolivian stages and a Salsa World Record Attempt at this year’s edition, the Brasilian Fever Stage features Leandra Varanda/Sambaviva, Adriano Trindade, Tribo, Elisangela da Bahia and Zeu Azevedo, and looks set to be a fantastic celebration!
Check out this quick interview with Leandra Varanda:
You are Brazilian and can you tell us how and when you came to the UK? What have been the biggest highlights of your career so far in terms of live shows and recording?
What does it mean to you to be headlining Carnaval del Pueblo –Braslian Fever Stage at the largest Latin American festival in Europe? Have you ever played at the festival before?
Do you have anything special lined up for the show?
You’re renowned for your live performances with the UK’s premier Brazilian samba band, Sambaviva. How long have you been playing music to audiences for and how do you keep things fresh?
Have you ever been affected by racism in your musical career?
How many records have you released, both solo and with the choro/samba group Caratinga and which are your favourite ones and why? And most successful.
At present I am putting my heart and soul into my new solo album, which will be a compilation of my own compositions in partnership with fantastic musicians such as Jonathan Preiss and Marcelo Andrade
