The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo, launches on Spotify the first playlist signed by great names who have already been curated by the project Música no MCB.

PLAYLIST CURATION MCB
The playlist signed by Carmelita recalls some artists who have already visited the MCB terrace, showing the diversity of genres brought by the presentations that took place at the museum over the years. “The objective is to promote plural music, with different musical origins”, explains Carmelita.
