Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Tom Jobim and Jao Gilberto! If you know who they are, you must be a big fan of Brazilian music! And the next COFFEE HOUR is something you just don't wanna miss! In April, we'll invite Mr. Pierre Marcel Ussuy, A Japanese-Brazilian and the co-owner of the Millennium Language School in Ushiku. With some Brazilian CDs and videos of Brazilian Carnival of his choice, Pierre is going to talk about his country, where so many different kinds and styles of music with influence from Europe and Africa are produced. As everyone around him agrees, no one can beat this "king" Pierre when it comes to Brazilian music! "Music is such an important aspect of Brazilian society and culture, and so many musicians and composers have inspired many Brazilian people with their fascinating lives for years, especially during difficult times in the history of Brazil," he passionately argues. How has their powerful music touched the people of Brazil? And how does it affect them culturally, socially and psychologically today? For Brazilian music lovers, samba dancers and those of you who just can't wait for the summer to come, Pierre is going to make you feel the wind of Brazil that you'll never forget!
Come and join the crowd at the monthly Coffee Hour at the Tsukuba Information Center on Wed., April 25 from 2 to 4 p.m. and hear the music Pierre provides. Refreshments will be provided.
