SAMBA SOUNDS ON CAMPUS

 

Music lovers are in for a treat on Friday evening when an expert in Brazilian performance will trace the origins of the country’s musical history.

 

The Carnaval! lecture will be presented by David Treece of King’s College, London, who is the director of the Centre for the Study of Brazilian Culture and Society.

 

The talk, which is open to the public, is being organised by Spanish lecturer Andy Daglish. It is part of a programme of events which have been held of the past month to celebrate Hispanic culture.

 

“At World Cup time we hear nothing but Brazilian music - the country has a rich musical history and we look forward to hearing David play and talk on the subject,” said Mr Daglish.

 

Many ULH students learn modern languages, including Spanish, as part of their degree course, and there are also a significant number of students from South America on campus.

 

The talk begins at 7.30pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre on the Lincoln campus. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. For further details contact Andy Daglish on 01522 886344.
