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.

Patricia Leao, a former dancer, founded Brazilian Nites Productions in the midst of the lambada fever in 1989. The husband-and-wife team from Burbank started the production company with the main purpose of advancing the lambada dance through contests, instruction and shows. Over time, the company expanded its scope and now aims to promote the numerous facets of Brazilian culture, music and dance.
Brazilian Nites Productions has been successfully organizing events since its inception, bringing people of different ages and nationalities together to experience the allure and character of Brazilian culture. The company produces several shows each year, including two annual events: the Brazilian Summer Festival at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre and L.A.’s Brazilian Carnaval at the Club Nokia in February (formerly at the Hollywood Palladium and Queen Mary).The Summer Festival is a co-presentation with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and is part of the Ford Theatre’s Summer Season, while the Carnaval celebration is self-presented.
