A Night in Rio


The night will kick off with the always popular FREE Samba dance lessons, followed by the energetic and contagious Carnaval parade. 

We are thrilled to have authentic, energetic and colorful dance performances by Brazilian Fusion and NC Brazilian Arts Project; an Afro-Brazilian martial arts presentation that combines music and dance by Charlotte Capoeira ; and for the first time in the Carolinas, we are excited to feature the award-winning Brazilian carnaval band, Grupo Saveiro.


Grupo Saveiro: Twice voted "the best Brazilian group in the United States" by the Brazilian International Press Association, Grupo Saveiro has performed in some of the largest carnaval shows outside of Brazil, featuring the high energy, dazzling musicianship and vocals that bring crowds to their feet to dance to the irresistible mix of carnaval rhythms, performed on percussion and bateria, along with guitar, bass, cavaquinho, spiced with hot keyboard harmonies. Members of the band are veterans of Rio de Janeiro's world famous carnaval parades. In New York they have performed at the huge annual Brazilian Independence Day celebration, at Lincoln Center, at the Queens Museum of Art, at Brooklyn Museum's "First Saturday," and many other venues. They perform regularly at festivals, clubs and events throughout the East Coast.
