Love can be raw, dramatic, peaceful or sweet – and will be represented in all these forms at the ‘Os Brotos Também Amam’ romantic music festival taking place at SESC Vila Mariana, starting 3 June. The theatre’s main stage highlights three performances by Brazil’s new generation of popular romantic musicians: Marcelo Jeneci, Tiê with Filipe Catto and the Pernambucan group Del Rey, a band that covers Roberto Carlos (who’s also known as the ‘King’) songs in an imaginative and rejuvenating way.

And what do these young artists have in common? They’re all heavily influenced by romantic music – an integral part of Brazil’s musical backbone.

The festival promises to recreate the time of bailinhos (local ballroom dances), when couples danced cheek- to-cheek to the King’s classics such as ‘Nossa Canção’ and ‘A Volta’. Felip S., guitarist of Del Rey, who plays 13 June, explains: ‘We grew up listening to the music on AM radio in Pernambuco, and followed that influence. What many people call corny, I call romantic.’  

Robertão [Roberto Carlos] also plays a part in Marcelo Jeneci’s repertoire as well. Conveniently, Jeneci performs on Brazil’s Valentine’s Day (12 June). ‘My parents loved him and I am the fruit of a romance made by the King himself.’

Tiê and Filipe Catto will close the festival on 14 June. Lovers can count on Catto’s visceral ‘Saga’, and Tiê’s ‘Na Varanda da Liz’. While the Tiê and Catto show – as well as the bulk of the performances – carry a ticket charge, free shows are scheduled at SESC Vila Mariana’s Praça de Eventos by duos like Bia Góes and Ricardo Valverde, and Estrela Leminski and Téo Ruiz. The schedule runs throughout the month, drawing to a close on 1 July.
