The much-anticipated, annual LA tradition of Brazilian Summer Festival (now in its 24th year) erupts on Sunday,September 16, 2018 at the outdoors of the Station 1640in the heart of Hollywood. Presented by Brazilian Nites Productions in collaboration with Baile do Victinho, the 2018 edition features the rhythms of Rio de Janeiro through the Samba and Batucada (percussion jam) and the exuberant Brazilian choreographies of the LA Samba Dancers troupe. Headlining is Latin Grammy Winner, Diogo Nogueira directly from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as part of his 7-city US Tour.

With over a million copies sold, Diogo Nogueira is currently one of the most popular Samba singers in Brazil. Son of the renown composer and singer João Nogueira, before Diogo was even one year old, he was already tagging along with his parents to samba gatherings, and started playing samba and choro instruments from an early age. Along 10 years of career, Diogo has achieved two times the victory in providing the theme of the samba school of his heart, Portela, where he was part of the sector comprised of composers, and won two Latin Grammys for Best Portuguese Language Song for “Bossa Negra”(2015) and Best Samba/Pagode Album for “TôFazendo a Minha Parte”(2010). He has recently launched his first album of all self-authored songs, Munduê, which he will perform for the first time in California, recreating the joy of Summer in Rio de Janeiro.

Those who are in love with the entrancing music of Brazil will be thankful for the gifted talent of Diogo Nogueira, as good as his dad, he has samba in his blood…”- Zeca Pagodinho

DIOGO NOGUEIRA

Also on the bill is Rogê, whocreates a laid back kind of samba that emerges as the soundtrack of modern and flourishing Rio. He composed the themes for the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio and the 2014 World Cup's Mascot. A frequent partner, Seu Jorge (well known for his 'Life Aquatic' project) recorded seven songs composed by Rogêin his most recently solo album, Músicas Para Churrasco(2012). Rogês new album, Nomade, was recently out and is a mix of his Brazilian rhythms with music from other parts of the world, and was produced by Los Angeles based producer, Mario Caldato Jr.

Heating up the dancefloor will be the LA Samba Dancers directed and choreographed by Joany Macias, hypnotizing with their sensual and elaborate samba steps in feather sequin micro costumes.

“…It’s not often that a world music festival at a prestigious amphitheater turns into the kind of relaxed, infectious party you would find in the backyard of a Latin American home. Then again, this is Brazilian music we’re talking about. History has shown repeatedly that offering resistance to the almighty drum is simply futile…”

– Ernesto Lechner, Daily Variety

“The annual Brazilian Summer Festival programs at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre have been oases of pleasure for fans of Brazilian music, featuring acts ranging from the percussive exuberance of Olodum to the soaring lyricism of Caetano Veloso.”-- Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
