In a career racked by tragedy, legendary Brazilian samba singer Elza Soares has persevered as a singular voice for the voiceless. Her latest album, The Woman at the End of the World, was a continuation of her lifelong work on behalf of the oppressed, meant “to talk about women, to talk about blackness, and to talk about sex.” As part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2017 and in conjunction with Brasil Summerfest & SummerStage, Soares will bring her undeniable charisma and unforgettable voice to a performance at Town Hall.

NYC-based outfit Forro in the Dark - who combine the driving dance rhythms of forró from Northeastern Brazil with rock, jazz, psychedelia, folk and more - will open this show.
