The Real Deal Brazil
The Real Deal Brazil is a sextet which follows in the Brazilian tradition of performing at people’s homes. During their performances, the vocalists normally sit at a table with a bottle of wine, making casual conversation, often including humor, and in a manner which is at times quite similar to theatre performance, introduce the audience to musical compositions.
