Abuka logo Juliana Areias Brazilian Singer AustraliaThe concert,  named Pipoca Moderna refers to “Tropicalismo”, a movement, whose diverse influence and anthropophagic behaviour, changed Brazilian music history in the 60s.

Tropicalismo portrayed a critical and complex picture of the country combining the archaic Brazil of tradition and the modern Brazil of mass culture through music, cinema and visual arts.

The repertoire of Brazilian popular music became more sophisticated and innovative yet open and all-inclusive. Tropicalismo mixed rock and bossa nova, samba, rumba, bolero, baião and beyond.
