SEPTEMBER 12, 2015  -  Downtown Boca Raton is holding a FREE event called Brazilian Beat 2015. Feast and samba the evening away. There will be live music, street entertainment including a Zumba showcase, Capoeira dancers, carnival dancers, samba drummers and authentic Brazilian food.

Headlining this year's Brazilian Beat are Alma Tropicalia and Batuke Samba Funk. Alma Tropicalia is a Washington, DC-based rock band that reimagines the psych-samba sounds of 60s tropicália 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. Batuke Samba Funk is a high energy Brazilian band that mixes Brazilian rhythms such as Funk from the 70's, Afro Samba, Brazilian Big Band, Batucada, Soul, and R&B.

Sandborn Square, 72 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton, 6 - 11 pm
