Arthur Nogueira: Poetry from Pará

This edition of Peter Culshaw’s global music radio show has a great guest – the hugely talented Brazilian singer, writer and producer Arthur Nogueira who just played his first-ever concert in London. Arthur plays several of his pellucid, lyrical songs live in the studio. He comes from Belem in the state of Pará in North Brazil on the edge of the Amazon and the show concentrates on music from that region. Pará is the size of France, but its amazing music scene remains a closely-guarded secret. One of the local specialities is the retro Dick Dale-style surf music developed by the likes of Mestre Viera called guitarrada (incidentally, the longest surf ride in the world is down the Amazon on certain full moons – called the Pororoca). Other modes are discussed including the traditional carimbo and the often tacky tecno-brega. For anyone unfamiliar with music from Pará, here’s a good introduction. David Byrne, Elton John, Caetano Veloso and Luis Gonzaga also feature in the conversation.
