A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Márcio Faraco comes to Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz Nov. 13.

Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz (TRK), the performance space at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, presents Márcio Faraco in concert, accompanied by musicians from both Brazil and France, on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m.

French-Brazilian composer and guitarist Faraco has quietly built a solid international reputation since the release of his debut solo album in 2000. Sometimes referred to as the “Leonard Cohen of Brazil,” Faraco’s compositions employ a variety of rhythmic styles rooted in the unlimited breadth of Brazil’s musical culture. He has absorbed the pan-global influences of his adopted home in France integrating his gentle samba and bossa nova with tinges of jazz, African music and Portugese fado.

For Friday’s concert, he will be joined by fellow Brazilians Gerson Saeki (bass) and Julio Gonçalves (percussion) and French accordionist Lionel Suarez.

The 75-minute performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will take place at Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz, 10361 W. Pico Blvd., LA 90064 (310-286-0553). Admission is $35 for adults and $25 for students. A no-host bar will be available. To learn more about this event and Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz, please visit
