PARTY ALERT: 18th Annual Brazilian Carnaval in LA

It’s time to celebrate 18 years of the largest and most extravagant Brazilian Carnaval on the West Coast, featuring Rio samba star, Neguinho da Beija-Flor on Saturday, February 24th, at Café Club Fais Do-Do, in Los Angeles.

First time touring in the U.S., Neguinho is considered one of the most iconic Carnaval performers of Brazil. Since 1976, he has been affiliated with the 12-times parade winner, Beija-Flor de Nilópoles, one of the largest samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. Accompanied by the energetic musicians of Grupo Resenha, a samba band based in California, and by the stunning passistas of LA Samba Dancers, Neguinho da Beija-Flor is sure to bring the true Carnaval spirit to Angelenos of all ages.

Attractions also include samba drumming group Samba da Mudança; KPFK host DJ Potira with an eclectic set of Brazilian rhythm; MC Leopoldo Nunan; and BatukAxe with a unique fusion of Brazilian, Latin and Reggae sounds.

The celebration continues with authentic Brazilian food and drinks, and a marketplace at the venue’s patio.
