The musical performance marks the beginning of the celebrations in Serbia for the Bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil.

The main ceremony was held in Jugoslovenska Kinoteka the day after, on Monday, 5th September when a distinguished guest from Belgrade diplomatic corps had a chance to enjoy Brazilian modern composers performed by Trio in Uno.

The Embassy of Brazil in Belgrade organised a reception after the concert in Hotel Square Nine where the famous Brazilian cocktail caipirinha was served.

TRIO IN UNO arranges and interprets the music of great Brazilian composers such as Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Assad, Hermeto Pascoal, Marco Pereira and Radamés Gnattali.

Together, the three musicians fused a particular sound style where the cello, 7-string guitar, and saxophone blended into a unique and refined body. Based in Paris, the trio has returned to Europe fresh from a successful tour in Brazil.

The São Paulo-based architect Isay Weinfeld has designed the SQUARE NINE HOTEL, where the cocktail reception will be held after the concert.

Square Nine’s Executive Chef Dusan Todic has planned for an unforgettable gastronomical experience of Brazilian dishes, presenting in the best possible way the country’s diverse range of flavours

During the reception, Brazilian Bossa Nova and jazz standards were performed by the Serbian band LUZ AZUL.

The celebrations of Brazil’s Bicentennial in Belgrade have been made possible with the kind support of commercial partners: Galenika, Grand Kafa, Square Nine Hotel, Podrum Radovanovic, Knjaz Miloš, Açaí-Mania, Kvantum Sport and Melissa.
