A performance by the Luciano Antonio Quartet takes the audience on a tour of Brazil by presenting a wide variety of Brazilian compositions combined with original compositions. In his performance, Luciano Antonio contrasts songs that have rich and complex harmonies and melodies with simple rhythms against songs that have simple harmonies and melodies with very complex rhythms, and the dynamics range from pure solo guitar and voice to the full sound of the rich Brazilian percussion in a fascinating musical way. Luciano Antonio has released two albums of original music: Vida De Artista—An Artist's Life in 2011 and Sem Palavras—Without Words in 2015. Come hear for yourself—Luciano Antonio has placed his stamp on the Brazilian music scene in Chicago.
