Born in the Zona Norte neighbourhood of Madureira, charme was the term coined in Rio in the early 1980s to represent the sound of contemporary American R'n'B, a variation of soul music that brought a previously unseen style of dancing to the open-air parties at the time. Viaduto da Madureira became the epicentre of the movement, a weekly open-air jam that saw a dressed-up but attitude-free crowd shimmying in unison to tracks by Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, and later the likes of Teddy RIley and the New Jack Swing sound. The party still runs every week in Madureira, but makes a welcome foray to Lapa this weekend, so take to the floor at Circo Voador and experience something approaching musical nirvana for fans of the sound.
