Get Ready 2 Samba: CultureALL is excited to announce more of the lineup of entertainment for the Brazilian Ball!
Brazilian 2wins, originally from a favela in Rio de Janeiro, are now based in Iowa. Their interpretations of pop songs feature the twins on violin and ukulele accompanied by a rhythm section. Their live show isn’t just a performance. It’s an explosion of positive energy.
CultureALL is working with members of the local Brazilian community to adapt the Brazilian folktale Bumba Meu Boi for a one-act theatrical performance at the ball. The story of resurrection and redemption is performed throughout Brazil and features elaborate costumes, dance, music, and audience participation.
World-renowned Contra Mestre Ninja will close the evening with a Capoeira performance. Arara Azul, an ensemble of musicians from his studio, Brazil Academy, will accompany Ninja. Arara Azul is the sound of Brazil infused with the energy of Carnaval.
