2019 Release

The David Byrne (American Utopia) show is incredible. I always said that he is the most chic of rockers. And that's what it is. But in this new show there is a life, a freedom, a luminous energy that is a force to counteract the feeling of low spirit that lives in the world. Being in Trump's America and receiving the news we receive from Brazil is the opposite of being in an auditorium before David's music and stage. I am more proud to be your friend. In the show, each song is a well-developed stage piece. The quality of the choreographies lies in their giving up their intrinsic level and putting themselves at the service of the popular concert structure. Whoever saw it in Brazil knows what I'm talking about.

What a beauty to have seen it here now. The musicians, all with wireless amplified instruments, dance and contrast with David so as to make each number better say what the verses and rhythmic-melodic phrases say. It creates a climate of genuine joy and beauty and a challenge to the baseness that rolls over and threatens to crush us. And there's Gustavo Di Dalva (a percussion genius from Bahia that I've known as a teenager), Mauro Refosco and Stephane San Juan. Friends. It is one of the most beautiful rock or pop concerts ever made and is unlike any other.
