The day before his National Concert Hall show, Carlos will talk at the Instituto Cervantes about his recent adventure in Brazil, that resulted in his acclaimed new album “Alborada do Brasil”.
He will make a special mention of the Hy Brasil legend, well known in Ireland, that according to some scholars originated the name of Brazil, when the 16th century Portuguese sailors thought to have set foot on the mysterious island.
Hy Brasil is the name of a track in the album in which Carlos plays Irish-sounding Brazilian music with his mentors and friends The Chieftains.
The conference will be presented by the Spanish Ambassador in Ireland, Mercedes Rico.
