Brazilian Carnival "Exotica" 2012

Brazilian Carnival “Exotica” at Nokia Live Feb. 25th. 2012


LOS ANGELES – The magic formula of true Latin party spirit, sensuality and flavors seduces Los Angelenos when the 12thannualL.A. tradition of Brazilian Carnaval: Exotica beckons revelers on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at Club Nokia/LA Live.  Carnaval, the euphoric, annual celebration before Lent, is the most famous and anticipated holiday in Brazil to let loose and dance the night away. The country stops completely for nearly a week and festivities are held day and night, mainly in coastal cities like Rio and Salvador, Bahia. In L.A. there is only one night to celebrate – February 25.


L.A.’s official, annual party tradition, Brazilian Carnaval is the closest you can get to the excitement and rhythms of Rio and Bahia in Los Angeles.This dance and music concert features the Los Angeles Samba School who will inaugurate Carnaval with a rambunctious parade, SambaDá and Chalo Eduardo’s All Star Band of highly acclaimed international musicians performing Carnaval hits, plus an all night pageant of elite SAMBA DANCERS and CAPOEIRA, the Afro Brazilian martial art dance. A ticket includes a100 drummer participatory drum circle by Remo and a free drawing for a trip for two to Brazil.




Joyful irreverence transforms Club Nokia’s multi-level dance floor into a HOT Carnaval party in Downtown L.A. This BRAZILIAN bacchanal offers its L.A. audience the once-a-year opportunity to embrace corporeal frenzy, indulge the senses and lose themselves in a relentless sea of samba, moving to irresistible beats behind the anonymity of sequins, masks and feathers. Brazilian food and drinks are served to heighten the sensory adventure. Costumes are encouraged!!!
