Brazil Nuts

Couldn’t summon enough scrilla to afford a plane ticket to Rio in time for this year’s Carnaval? Worry not, as DJ Seduce and his Afro:Baile crew will be offering all the frenetic festivities of the annual celebration (minus the colorful floats and bad behavior) during Carnival do Brazil.

A multicultural mix of music and dance will be on tap, including the samba stylings of Grupo Brasilidade and special guest Salome de Bahia, as well as a performance by dance troupe Grupo Axe Capoeria. DJ Seduce will drop tracks from his newest CD Brazil:Sambossica 3 throughout the night.
