With vibrant harmonies set to Brazilian rhythms and a joyous stage show, ORDINARIUS has breathed new life into Brazil's most beloved songs, from traditional choros to the music of Carmen Miranda.
The repertoire is sometimes performed a cappella (without the use of instruments) or enriched with instruments like guitar, cavaquinho and varied percussions. It covers the national and international popular songbook, from the American pop of Stevie Wonder, the rock of the Beatles, to the bossa nova of Johnny Alf, the sobbing of Ernesto Nazareth and the samba of Gilberto Gil.
"It was really amazing to get to perform on the Civic Center stage, to see what the professional touring shows see when they perform."
- Brittney, Waukee High School
