The authentic, annual Los Angeles tradition of Brazilian Carnaval erupts on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at Club Nokia/LA Live, transforming the multi-level dance floor into a true Brazilian party in Downtown LA. This BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT offers its LA audience the once a year opportunity to indulge their senses and lose themselves in a pulsating sea of samba, Afro-Brazilian contagious rhythms, sequins, masks and feathers. Brazilian food and drinks are served to fully round out the evening. Costumes are encouraged! Carnaval, the annual celebration before Lent, is the most famous holiday in Brazil and has become an event of huge proportions. The country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities.

Catch the Carnaval sensation and mingle, misbehave, shimmy and dive in to the contagious beats of an All Star band curated by Chalo Eduardo (performed with Sergio Mendes, Santana, Mickey Hart,) featuring top notch musicians playing classic Carnaval hits all night long. The band includes: Katia Moraes Andrea Ferraz; Hector Torres, Kirk Brundage, Will Philips (Percussion), Joe De Sa (Guitar), Sandro Rabel (Keyboards), Antonio Carlos de Sant’anna (Bass/Vocal), Chalo Eduardo (Percussion/Vocals), Leo Costa (Drumset) and more.

Chris Brazil will spin additional Brazilian dance music between sets. A 100 piece community drum circle will culminate in a thunderous grand finale that includes audience participation. Video visual environment by Leonardo Bondani (performed with Moby, Deep Forest, Lila Downs, Mexican Institute of Sound) will include a Rio Carnaval simulcast.
