Prisma Café & Bistrô
This week, a venue traditionally better known for its authentic rodas de samba will shake and sizzle to the beats and rhythms of less conventional Brazilian music against a backdrop of eye-catching images, courtesy of the members of etnohaus, a collective of Botafogo-based indie musicians and filmmakers. Convinced that art should not be contained within four walls, etnohaus is occupying Pedra do Sal on Tuesdays and Thursdays to bring unique music, as well as visual performances, to the crowds that gather at this historic spot in Centro.
For the first installment of this democratic event, etnohaus will be screening movies and bringing photographer and filmmaker, Paulo Camacho, to supply visual accompaniment to DJ[montano]VJ’s easy ska-jazz, new-bossa soundtrack in Thursday’s cinevaral. Sunday promises a double dose of dancing, first with Noites do Norte, a carioca band that puts its own spin on well-known Brazilian styles like choro, forró and samba, and finally, with DJ Obim and his exotic grooves.
