Join us for an electrifying outdoor concert of Tropical Sounds!

The concert will feature “Alma Tropicalia,” a band which pays tribute to the psychedelic Tropicalia movement in Brazil during the 1960s and ‘70s. Described as a mix of soulful grooves and samba, the band’s solo artist, “Elin,” is a virtuosic Brazilian jazz vocalist who has performed in top jazz venues from New York City to Tokyo.

Zezeh Brazil dance troupe will kick-off the concert with 15-minute dance lessons. The dancers, in their colorful costumes representing the vibrancy of their Latin culture, will also perform a number of dance styles, including traditional samba movements and samba reggae rhythms.  

Food will be available for purchase, although concert-goers are welcome to bring their own. No glass containers are allowed.

This FREE concert is held in partnership by the Golden Triangle BID and National Geographic Museum.
