Almaz make their only New York City appearance on Friday, July 30 at Terminal 5 as a part of their Summer US tour promoting their latest project, Everybody Loves The Sunshine. While singer, Seu Jorge, is well known for throwing an amazing show, this new collaboration of musical masters revisiting songs famous within the Brazilian diaspora (Tim Maia, Jorge Ben) meshed with classic American (Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson) and European (Kraftwerk, Cane and Abel) soul songs, with a bit of psychedelic samba to top it off, promises to be a glorious foot stomping orgy. If you haven’t already, this is the time to get your tickets before they run out.
