The Orquestra Contemporanea de Olinda will perform at Lincoln Center this Thursday, April 1st at 8:30PM for free! Fresh off winning a Latin Grammy, they are a fantastic example of how musicians there mix traditional rhythms with contemporary sounds. Let me know if you are going and I will see you there! They are also playing at SOBs on the 3rd but I’ll miss that one.
Here are a couple of portraits of kids doing the “trilhas” for the day of the Kings on 6 January. I shot this with my Mamiya 6 using only ambient light, and Kodak Portra Pro film, which I selected on purpose because of the nice skin tones and colors. No retouching necessary on these photos! I love the fact that the kids are so serious on such a festive holiday! They take their portraits seriously.
