Brazilian Day in New York, Sunday September 5, 2010

Posted on July 26, 2010

Started in 1984, this annual event commemorating Brazilian Independence Day has grown bigger every year. In 2010, the event will celebrate its 26th anniversary, starting on Saturday, Sept. 4, with the ceremonial Lavagem da Rua 46 — and then the main event, Brazilian Day, on Sunday, September 5, on 46th Street (also known as Little Brazil) and 6th Avenue, near Times Square. Presently the event takes over 25 blocks surrounding Little Brazil. Full information is available here in both Portuguese and English.

This year, in addition to the musical attractions from Brazil (including Carlinhos Brown, Zezé de Camargo & Luciano, and Margareth Menezes), one US-based band will be chosen to perform — the selection will be determined by popular vote, open to anyone who visits the website. To vote, click here, then click on “CLICK AQUÍ PARA VOTAR” which will take you to a page with a long list of bands. Find your favorite, and cast your vote! (Quite a few of them are bands we represent at Cantaloupe Music Productions!)
