Brazil
Tour to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro


In the early '90s I was invited by PHILLIPS (the company that invented the CD) to tour Brazil with a number of other musicians. We started in Sao Paulo, which was a wonderful city with very cultured progressive people. I was warmly welcomed and honored for my gift. Next we went to Rio, where the atmosphere in the city is somewhat bizarre, which might have something to do with their practice of voodoo, which you can observe in all the altars and fires burning as you walk along the beaches. As strange as that Rio performance was, I really enjoyed the tour, the variety of experiences, and the people of Brazil who are warm, passionate and friendly.
