Espacinho SESC and the children of the communities

20151027_100350Royal Rio once again was very happy to be invited  to work together with Especinho  SESC to assist the students of our  communities.

This time, Espacianho SESC  promoted a very different and special  experience for the less privileged children.

The Italian artists Simona Lobefaro and Alessandro Lumare together, developed and made especially for  those children, a dance and drawing workshop with two of their works: SEGNI MOSSI a dance-design laboratory and AL CUBO, an interactive performance.20151027_102523

Segni Mossi was born from the mix  of  researches of  the two Italian artists who decided to investigate and study the relationship between the graphical  and corporeal language with references to art performance, action painting, the traditional Japanese art and  informal and analog graphical productions.

Gradually the children were involved with the dynamic and up from a moment they were invited to interfere, to occupy the cubic structure and to draw. Traces and gestures were reflected in the music created together with the drawings and movements. 20151027_110630

It was lovely to see the children happy under the impact of this so innovative experience.

Heavy Metal Show in Rio

6 October 2015

New Album: “Beyond the Red Mirror”

BLIND GUARDIANThe Blind Guardian band, is one of the main formations of the world heavy metal. They will play on the stage of  Vivo Rio on October 9th  and the show is part of the world tour disc release “Beyond the Red Mirror”, launched in January 2015.

Blind Guardian was formed in 1984 in Krefeld, Germany, under the name of Lucifer’s Heritage but later, the band changed their name into Blind Guardian to avoid any speculations about Satanism and to keep distance from the black metal movement.

Over the years, the Blind Guardian went headlong into the fanciful themes and their sound became more and more elaborate. Their style initially was more in of speed metal but gradually they played more complicated compositions focusing less on speed. and beginning  to incorporate large amounts of orchestral arrangements utilizing the technique of  overdubbing  heavily influenced by the English rock band  Queen. 

The Band created a dense sound using overdubs, staccato guitars, double bass drumming, folk tunes and instruments and numerous backing vocals.

The band was initially inspired by their fellow countrymen  Helloween, Iron Maiden and Metallica and  gradually incorporated more influences from progressive and classical music, progressive rock and progressive metal.images

Blind Guardian possess the ability to transport their legions of fans to new landscapes with their majestic songwriting, fantastically themed lyrics and their meticulous emotion-packed music.

In Brazil these German guys have a large and loyal number of followers and since 1998 the country is an obligatory stop to every new release, with performances always very busy and intense.
