Spirit of Brazil is a variety television special that tells the story of Brazilian music through stellar performances by some of Brazil's most engaging singers and charismatic musicians. The program is a celebration of the magical music of Brazil told through rhythm and dance, melody and song. Juxtaposing main-stage performances by legends as well as discoveries of Brazilian popular music, the program also features vibrant images recorded in samba schools and other colorful locales. All artists performing in the concert on the main stage are accompanied by a house band made up of highly talented and respected Brazilian musicians, including Luiz Brasil, a well-known musical director from Bahia who has performed with the top Brazilian artists during his career.
