Katia Moraes & Brazilian Hearts
Well known for delivering high energy performances, Kátia does more than that. She enchants, educates and inspires audiences of all ages with her joy and musicality. Singing since 1984, she had shared the stage with Sergio Mendes, Oscar Castro-Neves, Airto Moreira, George Duke, Elba Ramalho, Alex Acunã, Justo Almario, and Praful, among others.
Katia is currently organizing the release of her EP produced by sound engineer/producer Lynne Earls (K.D.Lang, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim) and composing for her solo CD to be recorded in 2013.
“…and Moraes’ singing, as always, was a virtual definition of the passion that is an implicit part of Brazilian music.” - Los Angeles Times
Katia Moraes – Vocals, Marcel Camargo – Guitar, Carlitos del Puerto – Bass, Leo Costa – Drums
Samba Da Mudança (Samba for Change)!!- Escola De Samba~Los Angeles
Created to share the joy of Samba Drumming and Dance for positive change and musical expression! Formed to celebrate group drumming in a fun and supportive environment. 'Mudança' for positive 'Change' in the world! Mudança = change, shift, move, turn, transition, variation
This samba school focuses on progressive arrangements and rhythms. Especially the "bloco" style of samba that is happening in Brazil right now. Artists like MonoBloco, BangalaFumenga, Marcus Santos and Trokobloco. Of course they also do traditional Rio style samba. Bringing positive change and energy through the power of music! This is an open samba school. Anyone can join!
Joany’s fascination with Samba began at the early age of six when she would admire the Brazilian Carnival “Passistas” (Samba Dancers) performing in Rio’s famed Sambodromo Parade and it was here that her passion for Brazilian Samba was born.
Joany’s devotion to this wonderful artform has taken her on many exciting journeys - from parading with Rio’s prestigious Salgueiro Samba School, performing with many Los Angeles Samba Dance Troupes and being crowned Queen of M.I.L.A. (the first Samba School of Los Angeles).
She has had the pleasure to grace the stage with legendary recording artists including Aretha Franklin at the Hollywood Bowl, The LA Symphony Orchestra, Sergio Mendes, Bebel Gilberto, Gilberto Gil and Wyclef Jean.
Joany has also appeared many times on worldwide Television Networks from Brazil’s GLOBO, Mexico-USA’s Univision and mainstream USA Networks with Samba performances on shows such as the CW’s revamped “90210”, NBC/The Jay Leno Show and Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards with Will Smith.
Joany has evolved into a powerful creative force through her unique and exotic costume designs, creative direction, choreography and an ever-present passion for Samba that captivates her audience.
Ever since the art deco Queen Mary set sail on her maiden voyage 70 years ago in 1936, the legendary transatlantic ocean liner has been THE place for the beautiful, the rich, the famous and soon-to-be-famous to be and be seen. And the same is true today – especially on New Year’s Eve! During the past 25 years in Long Beach, nearly 100,000 revelers have been aboard the city’s icon to welcome the New Year – and the Silver Anniversary Stars and Lights Celebration will be the best yet.
Brazilian Dinner Buffet catered by Silvio's Brazilian BBQ.
Brazilian New Year is one of the most traditionally celebrated festival for the people living there. New Year in Brazil is known as Ano Novo (Portuguese) but is more popularly known as Reveillon. People dressed in white offer flowers and gifts to the Iemanjá, the Goddess of the Water in the Brazilian Umbanda religion. The colorful floating candles gives a splendid view at the time of New Year. This festival is celebrated with much devotion and sincerity by the fishermen of the city. They believe the catch at the time reflects the catch for rest of the year.
Partygoers who attend the New Year’s Eve party will be dancing non-stop to the pulsating rhythms of SAMBA, MARCHA, AXÉ MUSIC, SAMBA-REGGAE, FORRÓ, PAGODE, FREVO and CARNAVAL ELECTRICO.
