Victória Sales – Cenarium Magazine

MANAUS – More and more artists from the Legal Amazon are taking space on streaming platforms. Therefore, CENARIUM has separated nine artists that will make you enjoy the day even more and can still put in the playlist to share with friends and family. It is worth remembering that the Amazon covers 49% of the national territory and is formed by the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima, and Tocantins, and a part of Maranhão.


In the state of Acre, the outstanding singer is Sandra Buh. She is an actress, singer, costume designer, and teacher, and was born in Seringal Sacada da Samaúma, in the municipality of Brasileia, in Acre, where she had her first contact with art. She started her professional career in 1988, when she was 18 years old.

“I had never had contact with the show house, and at the time they called Ivan de Castela and Antônio de Alcântara to help us, and I went. It was the first time I went into a theater to perform. It was at the Cine Teatro Recreio and from then on I got completely involved and started performing in theaters”, she told the Continet portal.

In Amazonas, singer Duda Raposo, despite being only 19 years old, is fighting to conquer her space on the local scene. Since she was a little girl she has always had direct contact with music. In the past, on Sundays, recalls the artist, it was routine to gather the family, have a barbecue, and put CDs of all genres at maximum volume. With this, Duda was being inserted into this path, even if unpretentiously.
