The joyous energy of the Rio de Janeiro carnaval comes to Salt Lake City!

About this event

The Brazilian Arts Center is bringing Monobloco to perform in Salt Lake City and you don't want to miss this incredible opportunity!

Monobloco is a “bloco”, or street band, that parades during carnaval in Rio de Janeiro and is also a professional touring band. The group became popular by creating powerful cover versions of Brazilian hits, stepping outside of the samba genre. Classics by Tim Maia, Jorge Benjor, Alceu Valença, and many others were transformed into samba anthems and attracted fans from a whole new generation. During the world-famous Rio de Janeiro carnaval, Monobloco has its own parade, which today attracts over half a million people to the streets to dance and sing. The group’s popularity soon led to the creation of a professional touring band, which has performed extensively around Brazil and internationally, including at the London Olympics in 2012. The group has also released several live and studio albums including the 2010 release called “10”, which was nominated for a Latin GRAMMY for Best Samba/Pagode album.

The Brazuca Band will be opening for Monobloco! The Brazuca Band is a fusion of Brazil and USA, combining sounds from both cultures to create a music genre unique to the band. Led by Diego Campos of Brazil, the Utah-based band is internationally recognized for its music and energetic shows.

Doors open at 7pm.

Brazuca Band starts at 8pm.

Monobloco starts at 9pm.

On Thursday, July 7th, at 6pm, Monobloco will be teaching a Percussion Workshop in the Salt Lake Area. No experience necessary. Those who take part in the workshop will be invited to play a song with them in their show on Friday! Come take part of this epic opportunity! Also, feel free to bring your own drum or percussion instrument. Those participating in the workshop will get $10 off their ticket for the show (already included in the ticket price).

Meet & Greet tickets: Monobloco will be available for photos at the gated patio area of Liquid Joe's on Friday after the show. Must have a Meet & Greet ticket to get in.
