<3 Because of this powerful woman who I admire profoundly, I'll be the MC of the 2018 Samba Congress Opening Night tonight. Even though I was not born in a family of tradicional "sambistas" like her, we are both from Rio de Janeiro, appreciate the power of psychotherapy, and believe artistic expression can heal the human body and spirit. Tonight, the 2018 Samba Congress will honor Dionne Warwick. <3  Photo by Jorge Vismara taken during the Brazilian Heart Celebration honoring Noel Rosa.
