Afro-Brazilian pianist and bandleader Dom Salvador worked with many Brazilian superheroes from the late '60s until just past the mid-'70s, including Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, Elza Soares, Tim Maia, Elis Regina and more. The 1971 album 'Som, Sangue E Raça' with his band Abolição (Abolition) is one of the first sought-after Brazilian LPs, often going for 500-600 Euros among vinyl collectors and DJs. In 1977 Dom moved to New York and is still active there today. His remarkable story includes what the living conditions were like during the military dictatorship in Brazil and why he left during the height of his musical career in his home country. Dom has been a key figure in the development of bossa nova, Brazilian soul and funk. We are therefore very excited to host this Dutch premiere!
