The charming and very tiny Casa de Francisca hosts Rodrigo Campos, the player of the cavaquinho (a ukelele-like four-string Brazilian instrument) for two nights. Considering his debut album São Mateus não é um Lugar Assim Tão Longe drew critical acclaim, we expect nothing less from Bahia Fantástica, his latest album that’s the focus of his upcoming show.
The sounds of Bahia mingle with traditional paulistano samba like in the afrobeat influenced ‘Princesa do Mar’ as well as ‘Morte da Bahia’, which relies on some heavy bongo slapping and jazz flute worthy of Ron Burgundy in Anchorman. And while you’re probably already aware of it, a friendly reminder that it's always smart to book your reservation ahead of time at the Casinha.
