5th Annual Downtown Boca’s Brazilian Beat

Brazilian Beat 2016Saturday, September 10, 6pm-11pm – Mizner Park Amphitheater, 590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton

Brazilian Beat is back for its 5th year!! Saturday, September 10 from 6-11 PM. Come hear the sounds of a top-selling Brazilian artist and Samba drummers, see beautiful costumed dancers in a Rio-style parade, and enjoy savory Brazilian cuisine and cocktails. As an official celebration of Brazilian Independence Day, Brazilian Beat brings together the art of music and dance in one mesmerizing cultural event.

Headlining the event is world-renowned singer-songwriter Bebel Gilberto, a multiple Grammy nominee, whose electronic bossa nova captivates audiences. One of the top selling Brazilian artists in the U.S. since the 60’s, Gilberto sonically transports listeners to Brazil with bright, incandescent bossa nova-infused melodies, lyrics about love, and a performance style that has earned her raves. Opening for Bebel will be Batuke Samba Funk Unplugged.

The SambaLa Samba School will perform a vibrant Rio-style parade with beautifully costumed dancers and Samba drummers. Attendees of the event will also enjoy a Zumba showcase, a Capoeira circle, street dancing, and much more. This is a FREE community event.
