PORTraits: Leo Oliveira (Portuguese at Tulane Video Series)

October 29th, 2020

The PORTulane community is a vibrant collection of people that have diverse trajectories in the language and culture of the lusophone world. Join us weekly as we share a 2-minute video featuring one of the members of our community.

This week we will hear from Leo Oliveira. Leo is a native of São Paulo who has lived in New Orleans since 2008. He is the founder of the band Amigos de Samba and the instructor of Tulane’s Brazilian Music Ensemble course.

Special thanks to Frida Melgar for her support in this project.
