A scene from last year's edition of Brazil Day

A taste of Brazil at Poble Espanyol

This event features concerts, gastronomy and a host of Brazil-related activities.

Make some space in your agenda for a fleeting but intense journey to Brazil on 10 September. All that Sunday at Poble Espanyol you'll find music-related activities like capoeira, forró, samba and concerts by Brazilian performers, as well as an extensive assortment of food. All of this will take place as part of the 9th edition of Brazil Day, a consolidated festival that changes location every year and where families will also find plenty of activities for kids.

The gates of Poble Espanyol on Montjuïc will open at midday and visitors will find there artists such as Anastácia, a singer and composer who is known as the Queen of Forró in Brazil, singer and songwriter Mariene de Castro, and groups like Sapato Branco and Barbado Samba. The Samba Unidos school of Barcelona will stage a convincing replica of the festivals and parades usually seen at the carnival in Rio, wile the group Ketubara will add a splash of their samba reggae rhythms. t

But there's more on offer. A few days later, from 14 to 17 September, it'll be time for the 4th edition of Brazilian Film Day. Based at Cinemes Girona, this showcase will see screenings of five Brazilian films: the fictional productions Mulher do Pai by Cristiane Oliveira, Per Ter Onde Ir by Jorane Castro and Animal Político de Tuão; and two documentaries: Martírio by Vincent Carelli, Ernesto de Carvalho and Tita, and Jonas e o Circo Sem Lona by Paula Gomes, which is screened for children.
