Elza Soares Elza da Conceição Soares has achieved what most people can only dream of. She has remained a superstar in her field for over six decades, melodically soaring through the ages. A native of Rio de Janeiro, Soares began her professional singing career in the 1950s, when she joined Mercedes Batista on a dazzling samba tour of Argentina. Her popularity grew exponentially when she released her debut Se Acaso Você Chegasse, in which she invoked a Louis Armstrong flavor as she incorporated jazz into samba-scat riffs. Liniker e os Caramelows Deep in the lush countryside of Brazil, a gifted gang of like-minded musicians came together. Led by the effervescent Liniker Barros, a transgender vocalist, Liniker e os Caramelows was assembled – never dreaming that they would one day tour the world, spreading their uplifting music. The first tracks that they ever recorded were based off Liniker’s personal letters, and thanks to the far-reaching power of Youtube, this band’s up-tempo songs spread like wildfire (over 10 million collective views). Teleseen Teleseen (DJ set) Special project of global underground DJ, a mix of deep & afro-house, samba and baile funk  The primary project of nomadic DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Cyr, Teleseen weaves together musical influences from the global underground into a refreshingly unique mix.
