Art in the subway

São Paulo offers many surprises! One must only have “eyes to see”. Even in midweek, you can come across music and art in the subway. It happened to me!

This week, in Anhangabaú station, the musical group Chorando na Labuta brightened the morning with this traditional musical genre called “chorinho”. The music of Ernesto Nazareth, Pixinguinha and other masters echoed beautifully through the halls.

In Sé station, the passengers themselves gave the show. As in other subway stations of the city, there is a piano available to those who want to play — it’s the Piano Project in Subway.

In the subway you can also enjoy exhibitions of painting, sculpture and photography. Some works are itinerant, others are permanent, as the panel São Paulo viva (São Paulo alive), by Isabelle Tuchband, Verena Matzen and Paula Pedrosa, installed at Santa Cruz station.
