Ranked by Rolling Stone as the third greatest Brazilian singer of all time, Ney Matogrosso came up in the ’70s with Secos e Molhados, but his flamboyant stage theatrics, loud costumes, and singular high-pitched countertenor voice have made him one of those distinctly unique artists to come out of Latin America in the 20th century. Recipient of a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Matogrosso will perform in Central Park in a rare visit to the US.

The self-described “pachanga folk” band Francisco El Hombre created their latest album Casa Francisco in isolation under the watchful eye of videocameras, livestreaming its production as a pseudo-reality show. Their 2017 song “Triste, Louca ou Má” (Sad, Crazy or Bad) was nominated for a Latin Grammy. The showcase also features two artists from the motherland: Lisbon’s Fado Bicha, a queer, anti-racist, feminist duo pushing the boundaries of traditional fado and challenging Portugal’s political status quo, and DJ set by Surma, a one-woman-band who wields a dozen instruments to accompany an ethereal voice.
