An immersive musical journey, Dom Salvador and Abolition is the untold story of Dom Salvador, an Afro-Brazilian musician who found a home in New York. Departing from Brazil at the height of its military dictatorship, Salvador left behind an enormous shadow. As the godfather of Brazilian soul, he helped create Bossa Nova while announcing the arrival of Blackness through his band 'Abolition'. 

 

Octogenarian Salvador darts through the city, memories emerging with each step. A veteran musician whose consistency and humble resilience is revealed in captivating moments; rifling through vinyl at a record shop, putting up shows in jazz clubs, performing at Carnegie Hall, softly clasping his ailing wife’s hand and a permanent gig at the scenic River Cafe.
