Music ~ Silvio Correia
Born in Salvador / Bahia in the seventies. Silvio Correia has developed an artistic style with an eclectic composition. His style and presence encourages interpretation of music in a visceral way and has veins of existentialism.with elements of countless citations of people who cherish radical. It invites listeners to reflect on their freedoms, and to express themselves, to love, and to think. Silvio Correia ‘s music is lyrically clever and musically diverse. It arouses curiosity and a sense of sensuality because it speaks to raw experience.

“My music has social and political undertones. I am concerned with the chaos in current politics and talk about Global Warming, Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matters, LGBTQX rights; the 1%, and the all of violences around which we live these days. In short, all stories of our communities and our world.

My music explores inevitable dualities in life. Pleasure and sadness, insanity and desire-Yin and Yang. My song, “Oh World” is about my desire to spread love and music as my contribution to paradise and a call for others to reconnect to themselves too. To perform a collective reconstruction of our world with love.

I’m excited to be collaborating with so many highly respected and gifted artists including …. Marcos Odara (Percussion), Vicente De Jesus (sound engendering, drums, recording), Collin Miller (Viola), Danilo Portugal (Various), Silvio Correia/Me (guitars/vocals).

The vibrant melodies exude energy. Together we are lively, and our unique guitar riffs and harmonies take you on a musical journey through Brazil. My lyrics are derived from inner experiences and in collaboration, through our music, we bring the stories to life.”

Highlights of the show include the songs, “Pretty More then Pretty-Linda Simplesmente linda,” “Salve Salvador,” and “Alvorecer.”
