During the 12th Brazilian Film Festival of NY, the centenary of Bossa Nova composer Vinicius de Moraes, will be celebrated with a concert at SummerStage in Central Park. Join Toquinho, Vinicius’ friend and partner, as he pays homage to the life and work of the great poet.

Antônio Pecci Filho, better known as Toquinho, is a Brazilian singer, guitarist and composer. Learning guitar at a young age, Toquinho's professional career took off in the 1960s at shows at the famous Paramount Theater in São Paulo. His first big hit was composed in 1970 with Jorge Ben Jor, "Que Maravilha" (What a Wonder), and that same year he was invited by Vinicius de Moraes, co-writer of the worldwide hit song "Garota de Ipanema" (The Girl from Ipanema), to participate in a series of shows in Buenos Aires, forming a solid partnership that would continue for 11 years and produce 120 songs, 25 records and over a thousand shows. After the death of Vinicius de Moraes in 1980, Toquinho went on to pursue a solo career, often performing with other talented musicians like Paulinho da Viola, João Bosco, MPB4, Paulinho Nogueira and Chico Buarque. Toquinho continues to record albums and play his music around the world. He is still very acclaimed in Brazil and Italy.”

Born in New York City in 1990, Gaspar Muniz moved to Rio de Janeiro at an early age. His parents, the multi-media artist Maria Mattos and the photographer Vik Muniz, fostered an intensely artistic home environment exposing Gaspar to friendships not only to artists but also to musicians such as Bebel Gilberto, Marisa Monte and Seu Jorge. These icons of Brazilian music have always encouraged him to become a musician due to his natural but still unexplored talent and his endless curiosity about the subject. Since 10 years old and throughout his teens, the young and outgoing Gaspar solidified his love and addiction to music and started to DJ at events and house parties. At the age of 19, Gaspar decided to move back to New York to study advertising and continue his Career as a “digital musician.” Never attached to a specific genre, DJ Gaspar Muniz uses his cultural diversity and knowledge in his sets by mixing a variety of music styles from different places and eras. Now at 23 years old, Gaspar Muniz is gradually becoming a household name in the underground music scene in New York City.

Matthieu Chedid is the son of French singer Louis Chedid, and the grandson of the Egyptian-born French writer and poetess Andrée Chedid. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Chedid performs and records under the stage name -M-. Created as a means of overcoming his shyness on stage, the pseudonym comes from Chedid's first initial but also refers to the similar sounding French word “aime”, meaning “love”. The character -M- is a superhero, noted for having a playful nature, and recognized for his flamboyant costumes - primarily monochrome suits with slim trousers, long jackets with upward pointed collars and glasses styled into the shape of an M. Since 1997 and his first album and tour, he has been collaborating with a number of artists, both on stage and in the recording studio.

It's been quite the ride for Émilie Simon since her debut album took off back in 2003, the electronic album was critically acclaimed and went on to become a huge commercial success. Side-stepping her pared-down electronic beginnings, Simon pirouettes Mue, her sixth album, into fresh, sonic territory with lyrical reveries that sensuously saddle up to lush, organically rich string and brass arrangements. Despite writing all the songs and arrangements herself, the album still boasts a strong entourage: Sally Herbert (Bat for Lashes, Pete Doherty) conducted the string ensemble; saxophonist Gary Barnacle (The Clash, David Bowie, The Pet Shop Boys) plays in the brass ensemble; Tahiti Boy, Ian Caple, and David Kahne (Lana Del Rey, The Strokes, The Bangles) all contributed to the production; and Chris Cody (TV on the Radio) mixed the album. With a cast like this, Mue successfully combines fierce contemporary pop together with the Romantic effervescence of traditional musical ballads. The result is refreshingly powerful. Throughout, Mue boldly opens new doors with sonic arrangements that dance exclusively to the beat of ecstatic self-actualization, thereby shedding all the lies and trappings of false starts and promises by opening the windows and letting one's hair down.

Bobby Sanabria - drummer, percussionist, composer, arranger, recording artist, producer, filmmaker, conductor, educator, activist, multi-cultural warrior and multiple Grammy nominee - has performed with a veritable Who's Who in the world of jazz and Latin music, as well as with his own critically acclaimed ensembles. His diverse recording and performing experience includes work with such legendary figures as Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Paquito D'Rivera, Charles McPherson, Mongo Santamaría, Ray Barretto, Marco Rizo, Arturo Sandoval, Roswell Rudd, Chico O'Farrill, Candido, Yomo Toro, Francisco Aguabella, Larry Harlow, Henry Threadgill, and the Godfather of Afro-Cuban Jazz, Mario Bauzá.

Chico & Rita is a stunning, Oscar-nominated animated feature for adults. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams, while Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey -- in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero -- brings heartache and torment, as they battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. Along the way they meet Chano Pozo, Dizzy Gillespie and travel to three continents in pursuit of their passions. Directed by Tono Errando, Javier Mariscal, Fernando Trueba.

In homage to the women of soul music, SummerStage, ImageNation and Ubiquita Worldwide present Bellatrix!: A Soul Train Tribute to Women in Music. Dance, listen and watch with us as we celebrate the likes of Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Nona Hendryx, Tina Turner, Celia Cruz and others! This fete kicks off with live performances by special guests Jamila Raegan, The Ki Ki Experience, Raye Six & Phyllisia Ross accompanied by backing band Winston's Crew Collective under the direction of bandleader Dannis Winston. The concert will be followed by a Soul Train Jam spun by the Ubiquita Sound System and a screening of the Academy Award winning film Twenty Feet From Stardom.

Ubiquita Sound System is home to an ever-growing roster of brilliantly talented an accomplished female DJ's. Established in 2000, as one of the first groundbreaking all-female DJ residencies in NYC nightlife, the Ubiquita brand has become synonymous with a stamp of excellence for women on the 1 & 2's .The legendary DJ collective has appeared on the cover of the Village Voice and have played a wide array of venues, special events and cultural institutions around the world.

Formerly known as the Ladies of Ubiquita, these gorgeous selectors' more notable appearances include Good Day NY, The Studio Museum of Harlem, SummerStage, Brooklyn Academy of Music, VH1 Hip Hop Honors weekend, The Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, Winter Music Conference in Miami, The Brooklyn Museum & Harlem Stage. Notable brand partnerships include Scion, Red Bull & Cover Girl.

This Academy Award-winning documentary is the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others. Twenty Feet from Stardom juxtaposes interviews with industry legends (Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler, and others) and the relative unknowns who support them like Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, and Judith Hill as they illuminate the art of melding their own distinct voices with lead vocals and reveal their desires for careers as solo artists. Directed by Morgan Neville.

<![CDATA[SummerStage Presents: The Nuyorican Poets Cafe's 40th Anniversary Celebration / Screening: Our Latin Thing]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/17/summerstage-presents-the-nuyorican-poets-cafes-40th-anniversary-celebration-screening-our-latin-thing http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/17/summerstage-presents-the-nuyorican-poets-cafes-40th-anniversary-celebration-screening-our-latin-thing Date: August 17, 2014

Over the last 40 years, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts. A multicultural and multi-arts institution, the Cafe champions the use of spoken word and music as means of social empowerment for minority and underprivileged artists. Our community of spectators, artists and students is a reflection of New York City's diverse population. Allen Ginsberg called the Cafe “the most integrated place on the planet,” the Wall Street Journal says the Cafe is a “a thriving arts center with partnerships across the city,” and John Leguizamo says the Cafe "put the street on stage… Made our lives real, our emotions real.”

On one August evening in the 1970's New York gave birth to a sound that would change the face of Latin music forever. At the renown Cheetah Nightclub, there was an ensemble of artists got together for what became a magical evening of music. The show was billed as "Our Latin Thing". In the decades ahead those all-star musicians would become the ambassadors and juggernauts of Latin Music around the world. They became the musical reflection of the times, needs, and struggles of New York's Latino community. Their music was "Salsa Gorda," influenced by American Jazz, Soul, and Rock and Roll. Their music became part of Americana. Currently billed as "Our Latin Thing", the group performs as an assortment of this music's top hits. This Musical/Theatrical like revue, will take the audience on a musical poetic journey. Re-Live the music, re-live the times, re-live the magic....This is "Our Latin Thing."
