The final leg of Brasil Junino’s European road show will be held in London. Brasil Junino, an international cultural exhibition that seeks to promote Brazil’s famous Festas Juninas, or June Festivals, will be hosted by the Embassy of Brazil in London from 27 May to 4 June.
Several headline acts are already confirmed as part of the exciting line-up, including Zeu Azevedo, the legendary Brazilian musician, composer and saxophonist. The festival will also feature live dance recitals, or quadrilhas juninas, by Si Bobiá a Gente Pimba, from Brasilia and Raio de Sol, from Recife.There are also plans for a series of live street performances throughout Central London, to help promote the initiative.
The 10-day programme – which includes stage performances, presentations, traditional costumes, as well as an exhibition profiling the largest and most-spectacular festivals in Brazil – gives the British an exclusive opportunity to experience these uniquely Brazilian festivities, which normally occur throughout June each year.
