Paulo Padilha at the Cedar Cultural Center

By Emily Anderson

Though today is the first official day of fall, here in Minneapolis we’re counting the start of the season as September 27, when Arts Midwest World Fest kicks off with Paulo Padilha and Group at one of our most beloved local venues, The Cedar Cultural Center!

We’ve been enjoying the swing and distinctive beats of samba all summer with Paulo Padilha and Group’s lighthearted and catchy tunes, and we can’t wait to see them live. Check out the study guides and videos to learn more about the music of Brazil and the group’s playful style.

For those who know The Cedar Cultural Center’s rich history of building cross-cultural connections, it’s no surprise that they’re hosting Paulo Padilha and Group. The Cedar Cultural Center also participated in ArtsLab, a capacity building program of Arts Midwest, from 2000-2002. In a recent interview for ArtsLab’s case studies project, The Cedar reflected on their time in ArtsLab and the value of keeping their vibrant neighborhood of Minneapolis at the heart of everything they do.

Tickets are $15 and available online or at the box office. A little samba, a little pop—you’ll dance all the way home!
