A Night in Brazil with Dendê & Band

RIAF revelry begins!  Join fellow patrons and the artists of RIAF for a celebration of the music, dance and mystique of Brazilian culture -- from Bahia to Rio. Move your feet to the irresistible Afro-Brazilian rhythms of Dendê & Band – hailed around the world for their pulsating percussion, and their unique blend of samba, rumba, afrobeat and funk. Then follow the fun and the fantasy as Dendê takes you to the "cidade maravilhosa" (marvelous city) of Rio.

Plus, enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and soft drinks (cash bar available).

...a delicious mix … polyrhythmic power and joyous melodies...an irresistible call to the dance floor. – Boston Herald
