Brazilian “Carnaval” (car-nah-VOW), the biggest celebration
in the world, is coming to UW-River Falls! This event will feature the
phenomenal 10-piece band, Beira Mar Brasil, complete with a horn section and
loads of heart-pounding hand percussion. Beira Mar Brasil, led by Robert
Everest and his very special guests, has become one of the most authentic and
engaging Brazilian bands in the Midwest. Join us for this high-energy free event
featuring Brazilian music, food, dancing, and art.
Prior to the performance, a drumming workshop will be offered at 3 p.m. in the University Center. The workshop is free and open to the public.
