Lilian Veira has been famous for year for her amazing capacity for improvisation and charismatic stage personality, with the Brazilectro-group Zuco 103 and many other musical projects.

O Brasil da Lil is compiled by and presented by Lilian Veira herself. The programme is a mix of old school Brazil and new music. “Fortunately in my programme I have the room to play the b-sides of records, where often the best music is to be found.” Sem de Jongh, director of the Concertzender: “We’re delighted that Lilian is going to make a programme for us. Her attractive presentation style and huge musical knowledge ensure that it will be a fantastic programme.” Every second Friday of the month between 21:00 and 22:00 Lilian will share with listeners her passion for the music of her homeland and her favourite music and artists from Brazil. The programme will be repeated 10 days later on Mondays between 18.00 and 19.00 .
