Samba celebrations coming to London

Samba celebrations coming to London

It is impossible to escape images and sounds of Brazil with the World Cup taking place in South America's largest country at the moment.
 
However, if you want to enjoy Brazilian culture minus the football then you can do exactly that at with a new show coming to Sadler's Wells next month.
 
From July 8th to the 27th, Brasil Brasileiro will bring some typical Brazilian exuberance to the capital, taking you on a journey through the various forms of samba dancing as well as forro - a less famous but equally exciting form of Brazilian music.
 
Samba is such a prominent part of Brazilian culture and the opportunity to see it performed live by the very best in the business is an opportunity not to be sniffed at.
 
More than 38 dancers are involved in Brasil Brasileiro and they will dance their way through the history of samba, charting its beginnings as an African ritualistic love dance up to its present day form.
 
As well as forro and samba, you can take in another element of Brazilian culture with its roots in Africa. Capoeira is a hypnotic mixture of a martial arts and dancing and was brought to Brazil by slaves many years ago.
 
Brazil is a land where African and European cultures meet and Brasil Brasileiro is an opportunity for you to see the results in terms of music, art and performance.
 
You may find you enjoy the capoeira so much that you wish to give it a try yourself. If this proves to be the case, you can do exactly that at the Capoeira Esporao Danceathon taking place in Hampstead on July 12th.
 
Not only can you learn some of the capoeira moves seen at Brasil Brasileiro, you can also try your hand at samba as well as Caribbean dancing.
 
The event is held in support of Movimento Esporao, which is a charity project aiming to build a sports and community centre for underprivileged street children in the north-eastern state of Bahia.
