After an album and an illustrated newspaper, the show Samba de Guerrilha is the third phase of a musical research project by Brazilian Luca Argel, with re-recordings of sambas from different eras, in which each song is permeated by a text that contextualizes it, linking one theme to another and weaving a narrative line. Each story reflects an episode of political resistance against slavery and racism, led by cultural manifestations of the African diaspora in Brazil. Fights that had in the samba a witness or even an instrument of denunciation and subversion of a colonial logic that rules the social relations in the country and has not been overcome until today. The re-recordings do not reproduce the traditional sound of the genre – quite the contrary. The arrangements of the songs use instruments and textures from other genres such as rock, hip-hop and electronic music. On stage, Samba de Guerrilha makes the interdisciplinary crossings present in the project since its genesis, with a band directed by Luca Argel, who plays its songs, and also a dramaturgy work that presents the stories behind the songs, with staging and real-time drawing by the Portuguese illustrator António Jorge Gonçalves.
