BRAZILIAN NITES PRODUCTIONS, the largest Brazilian production company in the West Coast, and educators from Brazilian Play and Learn, are teaming up to bring the most authentic Festa Junina to Angelenos on June 9, 2019 from 2pm to 7pm, at Rancho Cordillera del Norte (9015 Wilbur Ave, Northridge, CA 91324).
Rancho Cordillera del Norte is a charming ranch just a few miles from downtown Los Angeles, featuring a perfect environment for outdoor recreation of all kinds. Mariana Leite and Bia Borinn, educators from Brazilian Play and Learn, will be in charge of activities such as arts and crafts, classic outdoor games and Quadrilha, a fun traditional folk dance for the whole family.
Featuring the “roots euphoria” of the group whose name is synonymous with Pagode, Rio de Janeiro’s Backyard Samba Band – Grupo Fundo de Quintal – Samba directly from Brazil!
Plus Beto González‘s MoForro band, that have been burning up dancefloors since their inception in early 2012. Rooted in tradition with deep reverence for the genre’s history, MôForró integrates a breadth of influences from its bandmembers’ diverse talent and musical backgrounds. As a result, MôForró is breaking new ground establishing forró as a unique part of the multicultural Los Angeles lanscape.
DJ Reyes Rodríguez will be spinning the best of traditional forró, a musical amalgam that makes everyone get up and move.
Those attending will be treated to typical Brazilian food from a variety of vendors, which includes barbecue skewer and different dishes such as Pamonha (sweet corn cake) and Canjica (sweet maize porridge). Attendees are encouraged to dress up like farmers to enjoy and dance the Quadrilha as they were in Brazil’s countryside.
