Philip Glass Days and Nights in Rocinha (1997)
Rocinha is a neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro famous for its lively cultural life and especially its "samba school" (whose appearance is the highpoint of the "Carnival" every year). I often visited Rocinha during the weeks before "Carnival" and have always been moved and delighted by its unique environment. "Days and Nights in Rocinha" is my musical impression and tribute to this place.
