Caro Pierotto:

Brazil beyond samba

As soon as Caro Pierotto expresses her first note, you get the idea that she was born to share her music with the world. Listening to her original songs and covers transports the listener to Caro’s Brazilian roots, not apologizing for her love of all things Brazil.

Caro’s captivating vintage voice includes a repertoire of samba, forró, reggae, soul and pop. Ernesto Lechner, Latin Alternative to NPR, says: “The expressiveness and technical mastery of Caro Pierotto’s voice underscore the Brazilian tradition of great singers – from Sylvia Telles to Gal Costa. Indeed, Caro Pierotto is listening for a hot summer night at the bowl!

Caro sings in Portuguese, Spanish and English and has toured Indonesia, France, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, UK, Ecuador, Colombia and now Redlands.

Caro Pierotto’s Brazil Beyond Samba show at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 23 is sponsored by Charles R. and Marsha Gebara Geiger in memory of Jim Gebara and Yvonne Geiger.
