Marisa Monte “Infinito Particular”

Yesterday, Bla had the pleasure to see Marisa Monte alive at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. As a huge fan since she started her career in the late 1980s, I ended up singing most of the lyrics during her exquisite concert and even crying at certain moment

Monte’s current tour is a kind of musical art gallery.  The artist brings out some great Brazilian visual artists and celebrate their work on the stage. It's magnificent!  Monte's voice is multiplied by a computer program at certain point and her body becomes the Infinity at other.  #lots of projections and crazy lighting #so many magical effects! #UmaVIAGEM

She brought in a curator to select the 16 artists and an art director, Batman Zavareze, to handle the multimedia. “Basically the concept was to use the stage as a contemporary art gallery where each song was related to a video artwork,” Zavareze said in an email to The Miami Herald Journal. “When [Monte] invited me, I was determined to use very high-tech possibilities in a very simple, poetic way.”

“Everyone uses lights and projections,” says Monte from Rio de Janeiro. “I wanted more than beauty. I wanted feeling. I wanted poetry. Something impressively different.” she has said 

Maravilhosa! Esplendorosa! Poderosa Marisa! U rock girl!
