I love Brazil! I love the music, the dancing, the beaches and of course the cocktails. But it’s a bit of a trek. With the Olympics over Brazil comes to Barcelona for a day of pretty much all I love about the country. Lots of sexy samba, caipirinha cocktails and great food. I go each year and it’s always a great day out with a top-notch atmosphere.
The event is in it’s 8th year and returns to Parc del Fòrum for the second time. Día de Brasil seems to be getting bigger and bigger and they have some top performers this year!
Latin Grammy award winning, singer-songwriter Lenine seems to be the main man. Music is also provided by the likes of Roberto Mendes, Chambinho do Acordeon, Veronica Ferriani, Caniball Football Club, and MdC Suingue Dj.
This year tickets are €15. The advance price of €10 is over so it’s pay on the day I’m afraid.
It starts at midday but usually the music doesn’t get going until the middle of the afternoon.
There’s the usual delights of capoeira, samba and they have 13 restaurants providing a range of exciting Brazilian food.
Check out the event programme for more about what’s on.
Also, for the 3rd year running and as part of the Festival de Cultura Brasileña, a series of Brazilian films will be shown at Cinemes Girona on Carrer de Girona between the 8th and 11th of September. You can check out the film programme also.
The event helps to promote Brazil abroad both for business and tourism so it has a serious role too. But for most of us it’s just a great day out. So get yourselves down there!
