Brazilian Nites presents the “18th Annual Brazilian Carnaval”, the largest Carnaval celebration on the West Coast, featuring Rio samba star, Neguinho da Beija-Flor at Fais Do-Do on February 24th, from 8pm to 2am.
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 from 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, along with a marketplace at the venue’s patio.
