SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser performed at the closing ceremony of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games Sunday evening (September 18) at Maracana Stadium.
The cultural program of the closing ceremony was structured as a concert, headlined by Ivete Sangalo and Gaby Amarantos, joined by Vanessa da Mata, Céu, Saulo Fernandes, Saulo Laucas, Kisser, Armandinho, Jonathan Bastos, the groups NAÇÃO ZUMBI and DREAM TEAM DO PASSINHO, and the funk singer Nego do Borel.
The opening segments featured blind drummers guided by a "visual metronome," a performance by Kisser set to a sequence featuring acrobats in wheelchairs, and a performance by Bastos — who was born without arms, and plays guitar with his feet.
Following the official handover ceremony, a cultural presentation was held to showcase Tokyo, host city of the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
