Brazilian musical pioneer Lenine (len-een-ee)
emerged internationally in the late 1990s as one of his nation's most
sophisticated and popular singer-composers. He layers digital technology
on traditional influences to create distinctly Brazilian music with a
decidedly modern edge--a musical poetry that evokes visions of bridges,
islands, enchanted lamps, and Martian fortresses. Lenine has garnered
fans around the world with songs that reimagine the radical potential
of pop music (his latest release, Na Pressão, topped the European
world music charts earlier this year). Known for his breathtaking, rhythmically
consuming live performances, he makes his Midwest debut at the Walker
with a five-member ensemble made up of some of Brazil's finest musicians.
