Naturalmente, by Antonio Nobrega

Naturalmente, is the name of Antonio Nobrega’s latest dance and music show travelling around Brazil.

Nogrega is one of brazil’s principal folklorists. A native of Recife, Pernambuco, he began his artistic career as a classical violinist before being introduced to traditional popular culture by one Ariano Suassuna. Nobrega became enamored with the myriad of artistic manifestations across the country. He had a particular passion for dance, especially frevo.
