The first week of April sees the Música Popular Brasileira (MPB) legend Wilson Das Neves add to the acoustic majesty of the Arena do Espaço SESC to mark the launch of his new album Se me chamar, ô sorte. Accompanied on stage by a five-strong superband formed by John Rebolledo and featuring guest appearances from Claudio Jorge e Áurea Martins, Tuesday and Wednesday nights are set to be a showcase of some of Brazil's finest musical talent.

The former MPB drummer’s catalgoue of work has amounted to over 800 recordings spanning decades and featuring partnerships with some of Brazil’s most celebrated musicians including Roberto Carlos, Wilson Simonal and Chico Buarque as well as international greats Sarah Vaughan, Michel Legrand and Sean Lennon. Wilson was also a member of Orquestra Imperial and Ipanemas as well recording four albums as bandleader of Wilson das Neves e Seu Conjunto before finally becoming a singer in his own right at the age of 70.
