Madonna is going to meet with carioca lead singer of Affroreggae, Anderon Sá, at 16h30 next monday, in Rio de Janeiro. The meeting has been confirmed by the spokesperson of Afroreggae group, who hasn't given any details about Madonna's arrival in Brazil.

According to the spokesperson, the meeting has been requested by Madonna herself, who got to know Anderson and his work through the documentary film "Favela Rising", directed by americans Jeff Zimbalist and Matt Mochary. The film depicts the origins of Afroreggae and how Anderson got into social works promoted by the group.

It was also informed that Madonna is producing a documentary film about children who overcame poverty through music and dance and, therefore, the meeting will be about this project.

This is the 3rd time Madonna visits Brazil, the first time was in 1993 with her Girlie Show tour and also last year with her smash hit tour Sticky & Sweet. It was also during her 2008 stay that she met Jesus Luz during a photoshoot for W magazine in Rio de Janeiro.
