Guilherme Pimenta & Pablo Arruda

Sunday, April 11th

In memory of

@ 16h Brazil || 20h Portugal

(online via zoom for max 35 people)

Guilherme Pimenta and Pablo Arruda - the mythical violin and double-bass duo from Brazil that are playing their 10th concert with Invisible City - have prepared yet another musical treat.

This time it is a question of life and death.

This Sunday, April 11th, we are back to their invisible room in Rio to listen to their interpretation of the exceptionally erudite yet wildly popular music by their favourite composers that are no longer with us.

Gui and Pablo will play in memory of Edmilson do Pife (Edmilson the Piper), a prolific Brazilian composer and master of forro who died in 2020; Chick Corea - the American legend of jazz who died in 2021; Aldir Blanc, a Brazilian poet whose lyrics against the dictatorship made him the poet of the nation and who died in 2021; Astor Piazzolla, the genius of tango who would have turned 100 this year.

The duo will also perform a few compositions by living and breathing composers of modern Brazil - you guessed it correctly, themselves!

Who is organising this concert?

Invisible City, a non-profit on a mission to enable emerging artists to perform more and get paid fairly.

How do I see the concert?

Once you have made your donation, we’ll send you an online ticket with a secret code to our invisible private room in Zoom, for which we have a professional account for maximum quality. We do NOT RECORD the concerts and keep our virtual room intimate and cosy, limiting the participation to 35 people.

Will I have a good sound?

We make sure that the artists have the fastest internet connection possible and are properly geared. We run numerous soundchecks prior to the concert to make sure everything is tuned on the artist side! You can do your part: make sure your setup is as perfect as possible with our self-soundcheck guide.

How much should I donate?

We encourage you to make a donation on behalf of every person who participates in this online concert together with you.

We believe that 4 euros per person is fair, yet most guests usually contribute around 9 euros, so if you have the means and wish to support the artists and Invisible City further, we’d be grateful if your donation corresponds to what feels fairest to you.

You can also make a donation directly to the Invisible City account (for example, from your Revolut app or similar):

Account name: Invisible City MTÜ

IBAN: EE88 7700 7710 0336 8942


(When you make a transfer, please mention your email so that we send you the ticket!)

How much does the artist actually get?

Even before the gig starts, Invisible City guarantees 100 euros to the artist. This is our investment into the performance which provides a safety net for the artist. We make sure it is never a lottery! These funds come from reinvesting the donations from the previous performances as well as from our private sponsors who support Invisible City directly (here is how you can become one).

What the campaign receives above the 100 euro mark, we share with the artist in equal parts. In this way, we provide a guaranteed income to the artist while staying sustainable and helping more artists run more wonderful gigs.

How do I pay in my currency?
