While programming the 14ª Primavera de Museus, the Museu da Casa Brasileira promotes a live by Rafa Castro. In this virtual presentation, the Brazilian singer, composer and pianist performs directly from the inside of MCB’s collection with a repertoire that unites songs from his most recent work, the album “Teletransportar”, with classics from MPB.
Recorded between February and March 2020, “Teletransportar” was produced by Castro and Igor Pimenta and carries 11 tracks that address current issues such as the environment in a critical and poetic way. According to Rafa, the songs still aim to give new meaning to life itself and enable connections beyond material reality.
“At the same time that the album has a background of longing, making it clear that there was a fissure and that something is being lost, the optimism of a more fraternal world prevails”, says the singer from the track Teletransportar – the CD’s namesake – inspired for cases like “Brumadinho”, the recent burnings in the Amazon and the destruction resulting from greed.

The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the Secretary of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020, is dedicated to the preservation and diffusion of the material culture of the Brazilian house, being the only museum in the country specialized in architecture and design. The MCB’s program includes temporary and long-term exhibitions, with an agenda that also includes educational service activities, debates, lectures and publications contextualizing the museum’s vocation for the formation of critical thinking on topics such as architecture, urbanism, housing, economics creativity, urban mobility and sustainability. Among its numerous initiatives, the Design MCB Award stands out, the main segment award in the country held since 1986; and the Casas do Brasil project, to rescue and preserve memory about the rich diversity of living in the country.
The MCB is temporarily closed. In the current scenario, MCB adapts its content to digital, making several materials available in its #MCBemcasa campaign and the #CulturaemCasa platform. Among the content launched, there is a virtual visit, playlists, articles and activities on social networks. Follow!
