Brazilian Musicians Bring Samba Rhythms to Sisseton
Paulo Padilha comes from Sao Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world. His music features the infectious, upbeat rhythms of Brazil with lyrics from the daily life of a musician living in a chaotic, Latin American metropolis.
This week the singer, guitarist and composer is in Sisseton as a part of a tour through the Arts Midwest World Fest program. He and his band are working with students and playing with local musicians. The visit culminates with a Saturday evening performance at the Sisseton Performing Arts Center.
Padilha joined Dakota Midday on the line from Sisseton Wahpeton college and discussed his music and offered "hugs from Brazil."
