American singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird lands in Rio as part of a tour curated by his fans via a crowdfunding initiative whereby the cities with the most pledges from fans were chosen to host his shows. The talented Silva and his array of modern bossa nova compositions opening the bill is a bonus attraction in a show centred around the traditions of classic folk.

Trained in the Suzuki method for violin from the age of four, Bird is no stranger to skilful fiddle playing and the musicianship shines from his songs. Early exposure to classical music, jazz and blues have all influenced his sound, though, and 2012 saw the release of two longplayers, the second of which, the modestly titled Hands of Glory, marked the seventh release of an ever-evolving career.
