Thursday evening starts with acoustic Brazilian music. The wonderful vocalist Iara Dias and her trio interpret bossa nova, samba and forró songs from renowned Brazilian artists such as Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Rosa Passos and Maria Bethânia.
Dias, who moved to Finland seven years ago, has sung and played guitar since she was a child. In Brazil, she performed with a samba group, and in Finland is known for appearances such as on the Voice of Finland singing competition, where she succeeded with coaching from pop star Anna Puu. Besides her own music, she is specialised in music industry business models and works at two music start-ups, including Music Patron, which she founded.
Appearing onstage with Dias is the Finnish-Brazilian guitarist and pianist João Hämäläinen and multi-instrumentalist Cássio Ribeiro.
