Criolo – July 21, 2012

Criolo  -  Central Park Summerstage  -   July  21, 2012

The headliner here was Bebel Gilberto, but no sketches of her.  As for her music, I was expecting (or at least hoping for) a nuanced treatment of Brazilian folk roots.  No such; instead a pleasant but insubstantial groove-based set with a lot of clap-your-hands-along and airy rhythm-syllables sing-along.  As Jake said, it is Summerstage.  Criolo is a pretty big hip-hop name in Brazil; he worked with a live band, also (surprise!) heavily grooved, though the sax guy busted out flute for one number.
