Mario Bakuna and Edmundo Carneiro launch their new album 'Where Rio de Janeiro meets Bahia'

The album recorded in Paris, brings in the core of its research the Afro-Brazilian rhythms from 'Recôncavo baiano' as well as the charm and subtlety of bossa nova.

The album is a journey through the landscapes of Dori Caymmi, the finesse of Tom Jobim, and the poetry of Caetano Veloso.

In the show 'Where Rio de Janeiro meets Bahia', Mario and Edmundo promise to transport the audience to a place where the real and the imaginary are experienced and enhanced by poetry and music.
