Tonight Mr. Paiva will present his newest project and production: "African Voices" where Brazilian music finds its main root, Africa. The compositions of this Project pay homage to and are inspired by African Brazil, its legends, heroes, gods, history and its unique mixture with European and indigenous culture.

From the ethnic and cultural pot of Brazil, the legacy of jazz, samba, northeastern Brazilian music and a pinch of classical music emerges a work full of melodies, rhythms and colors that touches the hearts and ears of the most unsuspecting listeners.
