Celebrate the opening of Beatriz Milhazes: Jardim BotÃ¢nico with live music by Alma Tropicalia and a waterfront bar on the terrace. Between sets enjoy Brazilian grooves from DJ Marcello Bentine.
The celebration features the Miami debut of Brazilian band Alma Tropicalia. The DC-based band reimagines the psych-samba sounds of 60â€™s tropicÃ¡lia music from Brazil, a mind-bending mix of tropical rhythms, soulful funk grooves and day-glo psychedelia that has quickly earned the group ecstatic reviews and packed performances across the region. The bandâ€™s daring lineup combines the masterful Brazilian jazz vocalist Elin (featured on Thievery Corporationâ€™s Brazil-inspired album â€œSaudadeâ€) with the unhinged experimentation of some of the top backing musicians in todayâ€™s rock and world music scene (featuring members of Cyro Baptistaâ€™s Beat the Donkey, Bio Ritmo, and more).
