Have you ever been to Brazil?
Well, you can have a little taste at BraziLive, hosted by El Rio, the beloved Mission Street venue, located in the Mission District of San Francisco.
Every Thursday night accomplished bands, emerging musicians and DJs perform the best of Brazilian and World Dance music. Capoeira performances, art exhibits ranging from photography to painting, artisan crafts, sculpture, collage art and more add to the creativity and uniqueness of the night.
BraziLive was launched in June of 2007, to bring together music and art created by Brazilians living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a festive social event, which has been growing quickly in popularity.
Our goal is to promote the rich and diverse Brazilian culture by promoting Brazilian artists and musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area. We will do this by highlighting new artists every week. Emerging and accomplished musicians, DJs and performers bring us exciting beats!
BraziLive opens its doors at 9pm, as the night pumps on with DJs and bands playing the best of Brazilian tunes, exciting beats and rhythms such as Brazilian Samba-funk, Pop Music (MPB), Samba, Pagode, Forró, Chorinho, Batucada, jazz/funk, Funk Carioca, Afrobeat, Electrobossa, Brazilian hip-hop, Sambass, Tecnomacumba, Electronica and other world beats.
A cozy outdoor patio provides further opportunities to experience Portuguese language and Brazilian pop culture by screening a selected Brazilian film, live concert or music video clips.
BraziLive – You better live it!
