ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY LAPA: THE HEART OF SAMBA
If samba is the soul of Brazil, then this new generation of samba musicians are its heart. This beautifully filmed feature-length documentary chronicles a community of samba musicians and composers who are simultaneously preserving and transforming Brazil's national music. Footage of live performances, demonstrations of samba instruments, and interviews with influential musicians illustrate the story of how the once-declining neighborhood of Lapa is being revitalized by music.
Our award-winning trailer and production stills of the film will also be shown for you to experience the unique community of musicians in Lapa, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker and NYC samba singer, Irene Walsh.
All proceeds from this event directly support the editing of LAPA: THE HEART OF SAMBA. Thank you for your continued support!
