In a post-pandemic concert resumption, the King of Sambasol, Wesley Nogg, will play a series of concerts at Boxyard RPT, an outdoor facility in North Carolina, United States. The proposal is to bring together artists from diverse cultures. Noog will always perform on Wednesdays on the main stage, Beat Box.
In the artist’s effort, “Here and There” will be a partnership with the stage, a sort of agenda with music and dance scripts. The proposal is intended as the motto of the stage: “Think globally, dance locally” to “celebrate the sounds of the world”.
Watch a performance of “Sambasoul” at The Blue Note in Durham, North Carolina:
Nog says that, in times of a pandemic, there must be a constant concern for the preservation of life, through the art and works of artists. Through artistic talents, to awaken Brazilian music around the world and to spread joy and ease the pain caused by the pandemic.
“I was the first artist to campaign to stop COVID 19, because I love humans, my people and scientifically understand the fatality of the infection, which has killed more than 660,000 people in Brazil. It is very important to remember that the pandemic is not over and not over, but we need to be strong and stay safe on this journey, besides ensuring prevention for our family members and close ones, for the safety of our people. There is also a need to protect. We also have to contribute to social causes that help the entire population”, says Nog.
