Brazilian-American composer/vocalist/pianist Clarice Assad, a NYFOS Next curator and featured composer on our mainstage series in recent years, performs the Brazilian classic “Beatriz” with her father Sergio Assad on guitar.
Edu Lobo and Chico Buarque are two of Brazil’s most celebrated artists of all time. I chose this video with my father and me performing this song because every other recording of this amazing tune is so overly produced with heavy arrangements and strings; I just wanted to really savor the complexity of this song by keeping it as simple as possible. And what could be more raw than guitar and voice?
