“Now everybody can touch Brazil. Cultures communicate, distances are shrinking. Largely thanks to Lenine.” - The New York Times
With a stellar international career spanning three decades, Brazilian superstar LENINE is making his way to the Arsht Center with a fusion of cultural influences and a unique song roster.
For his Arsht Center debut, LENINE will perform hits from his highly-acclaimed career, including award-winning favorites “Ninguém Faz Idéia” and "Martelo Bigorna," as well as new songs from his tenth album, Chão (Ground in English), produced by Bruno Giorgi, JR.Tostoi and LENINE himself. Chão consists of ten songs marked by intriguing, unconventional sounds like a canary’s chirp, a kettle’s whistle, a child’s heartbeat, waterfalls and a hypnotic digital ping-pong noise courtesy of a Facebook chat.
LENINE is a songwriter, record producer and arranger who has won five Latin Grammy Awards and a slew of Brazilian Music Awards. His music ranges from alternative rock to sounds from everyday life. In addition, LENINE has written songs for prominent Brazilian artists such as Elba Ramalho, Maria Bethania, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Maria Rita, O Rappa, among others. He has also produced albums for Maria Rita, Chico César, Pedro Luis e a Parede, Cheka, and soundtracks for soap operas, sitcoms, movies, dance musicals and theater.
