5th Annual "Samba do Trabalhador" and Brazilian Independence Day

Tropico de Nopal Art Space

1665 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, 90026

2:00pm to 9:00pm

5th Annual "Samba do Trabalhador" and Brazilian Independence Day, featuring Samba Society (old-school, roots samba), Môforró (Forró) and Os Zagueiros (Samba Soul).


This annual tradition, held in the traditional circular format blurring the lines between the audience and the musicians, has become the L.A. staple of old-school, roots samba.

This year the event coincides with Brazilian Independence Day! To celebrate this monumental occasion, we will be SUPERSIZING the event, featuring several bands for a full day of festivities, food, and drinks. FAMILY FRIENDLY.

If you have not been to an event at Trópico, where have you been??? This gallery/art space is a perfect family-friendly venue with a lovely, eclectic mix of L.A. artists, music lovers, movers and shakers. With Samba Society at the helm, this will be THE place to get a full dose of deep samba, batuque, partido alto, samba de terreiro, and this year, you will also get forró and Brazilian funk & soul!
