Margareth Menezes’s first appearance in Slovenia was at a concert at Cankarjev Dom in 1991, three years after Gilberto Gil’s epochal concert at Križanke. Gilberto Gil was one of the first in the wave of Brazilian musicians who have been filling our concert halls since 1988. He was followed by giants such as Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben Jor, Milton Nascimento, Maria Bethânia, João Bosco, Marcos Valle, Tania Maria, Eliane Elias, Ivan Lins, and others.
Like Gil and Caetano, Margareth Menezes is from Salvador (Bahia). Faithful to her musical roots, she mixes Brazilian (samba), Afro-Caribbean, reggae, calypso, salsa and pop elements in a genre known as Brazilian Afropop. Loaded with aesthetic symbologies, the Afropop movement aims to preserve tradition and history while adding layers of innovation, in this way forming something completely new, inspiring and contemporary. All this can be heard on Margareth Menezes’s many albums from the early Elegibô,  produced and championed by David Byrne (Talking Heads), to Autêntica  (2019), nominated for a Latin Grammy. In 2021 she was named one of the 100 most influential black personalities in the world.
With her powerful voice and infectious, rhythmic, unstoppably danceable music, Margareth Menezes is not just a musician, she is also the current Brazilian minister of culture. She has frequently performed with Gilberto Gil (himself minister of culture from 2003 to 2008), including on her 2008 album Naturalmente  and at the opening concert of Expo 2008 in Zaragoza. Come and join the dance!

In collaboration with: Brane Rončel
