AUDIO PORTRAIT featuring samuel rosa
Samuel Rosa, leader of SKANK, is a fanatic soccer supporter… nothing better than talking about soccer… regarding the crisis of the most popular sport in Brazil. In the episode called SCORE, Samuel Rosa talks about soccer. He talks about the thrill of his first experience with the sport, still at a young age, he explains his music career choice, his disappointment over the 7 to 1 Brazil loss in the 2014 World Cup, sharing with the public his joys and sorrows about the current path Brazilian soccer is taking.
The series AUDIOPORTRAIT delivers the word so the artist can develop a theme that has never been talked about. It is a show about the person, not the persona, giving the spectator an opportunity to join intimately the real person. It’s like a casual conversation where the spectator is in the second row, behind the silhouette of another participant.
It is a show that stemmed from the documentary WHITE BLACK and BLUES with BB KING, filmed in a differential format… it wasn’t just the music… it was a testimony about an issue that has impacted his career and, more than anything, a life’s story. In BB KING’s case, as a blues musician, touring across America for over sixty years, he narrated the changes in African-American civil rights during the second half of the 20th century, where music had an instrumental role. As an eyewitness to everything that was going on, he has credit as a consistent narrator, mixing narrative with musical performances. It’s not the career… it’s a point of view… an AUDIO PORTRAIT. Music is only the frame where history, in form of a testimony, truly shines… great developments narrated by someone who lived them.
