Moonlight Grooves: Carioca Edition
The Arts+Entertainment District’s “Moonlight Grooves” series, which brings live music to Canvas Miami’s “backyard” patio, celebrates Rio De Janeiro this month in honor of the 15th Anniversary of jazz station WDNA’s popular program, Cafe Brasil Radio Show. Musical performers Batuke Sambe Funk play a mix of high-energy Brazilian rhythms combining Samba, Afro-Brazilian, Batucada, and raw Seventies Funk. The group was founded by Brazilian-born, Miami-based bassist and composer Diogo Oliveira, one of the most accomplished and recognized Brazilian musicians in South Florida. Batuke aims to “Brazilianize” American sounds and “Americanize” Brazilian sounds in a perfectly balanced, rhythmic fusion. The Acme Lounge will provide sips and bites during the event.
