Shaking up the Brazilian musical scene

Under Glauber Amaral’s executive direction, Barraventoartes has been creating, producing and organizing music concerts since 1988. It is an authentic Agency for the Brazilian Popular and Instrumental Music, with a wide experience in divulging the repertoire of already famous musicians and in projecting new talents. Recently, it has broadened its horizons and started to service companies which employ the artistic universe in their promotional activities and inciting events.

Barraventoartes produces concerts for local and foreign musicians, both in Brazil and abroad.

The agency is active in three complementary fronts of the show business:

Artistic Production – career guidance, guidance for musical works of renowned musicians and development of new exponents.

Cultural Marketing – preparation of artistic projects and securing of funds with the private enterprise, based on the musician’s requirements. And, to supply the corporate demand, fitting of the companies’ requirements to the project, generating different products: tours, promotional CDs and launchings, among others.

Insertion in record companies – presentation of artistic music projects to record companies and specialized labels, aiming at finalizing in different medias: CD, DVD, video-CD.

Barraventoartes has already organized hundreds of events in the most important theaters and show halls in Brazil, private and public enterprise’s cultural spaces and Sesc units.

The managed musicians’ profile is also differentiated: famous songwriters, arrangers, singers and instrument players and new talents seeking for projection. Among the productions, we underline concerts of different proportions, cultural and corporate purposes and focuses. For the performance and success of many of such productions, the agency has resorted to the support and sponsorship from companies, clients and partners.
