Day 52 - Brazilian Feelings on the Lawn
Tonight we attended a free concert in the Botanic Gardens of Singapore. First a very cool (and very loud) students group named "Samba Masala" played Rio Carnival like music with whistles and many drums - was so awesome! When talking to them afterwards, we learned that they are a music group of the Singapore Management University. They played for about 20 very enjoyable minutes. At 7 p.m. the main act, the duo "Bastos and Borges" began its concert: a woman and a man from Brazil that sweetened our evening on the piano and flute with Brazilian music, classic to modern. A relaxed evening on the lawn, with children running around, families having picnic, and two - obviously Brazilian - young ladies that were inspired to dance to the music.
