Naná Vasconcelos: Afro-Brazilian Percussion in Paris and New York City
Dan Sharp is currently conducting research for a book that revolves around the 1980 album Saudades by Afro-Brazilian Naná Vasconcelos. The book will situate Naná’s reimagining of percussion and voice in the context of his itinerant life in New York, Europe and Brazil in the 1970s and 1980s. Snacks provided!
