Event Details

Samba Fogo proudly presents: Fogo Vivo (Living Flame), an
evening of live music and dance, ON FIRE.

Drawing on rich Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo ignites the stage as they weave traditional and contemporary dance forms, fire spinning, and diverse live music. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, backed by horn players, a string quintet, and the largest drum line Samba Fogo has ever featured on stage – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil.

Fogo Vivo (Living Flame) will feature several very special guests, including world-renowned dance artist Rosangela Silvestre. Between performances in Montreal, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, and Tokyo, Rosangela will be stopping in Salt Lake City to
perform a few pieces in Samba Fogo’s concert. A truly masterful dancer, Rosangela has a powerful stage presence and stellar dance technique.

Fogo Vivo will also feature special guest, master percussionist Jorge Alabe from Rio De Janeiro. Mr. Alabe was one of the first drummers to bring Brazilian percussion and samba drumming to the United States, traveling the globe with the world-famous Samba group, “Oba Oba.” Jorge is a father of Brazilian percussion in the US and is an extremely powerful drummer and performer.

In total, Fogo Vivo will feature a cast of over 40 talented musicians, dancers, drummers, singers, and fire spinners, coming together to inspire, excite, and uplift the hearts of Utah audiences and create Samba Fogo’s largest and most elaborate concert of 2019.

Tickets: $28 general, $20 student. Purchase through Arttix – artsaltlake.org, 801-533-ARTS

Just hours after being sworn in, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for a review of the boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. The monuments—designated by Barack Obama in 2016 and Bill Clinton in 1996—were reduced by roughly 2 million acres by former president Donald Trump, and the executive order is seen as move towards restoring the original boundaries.⁠

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠
