Music Without Borders: Diogo Nogueira + Freshlyground
"Millennium Park welcomes 30 year old Diogo Nogueira, one of Brazil’s rising stars of samba and a 2008 Latin Grammy Award-nominee for Best New Artist. A native of Rio de Janiero, Nogueira performs the samba-canção, a more melodic variation of the samba, full of romantic lyrics that wax poetic about love, music, soccer, and an endless infatuation with Rio."

"Freshlyground is a South African Afro-fusion band that formed in Cape Town in 2002. The band members variously hail from South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe. Freshlyground's musical style blends elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk music), blues, jazz, and features of indie rock."
