Wednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – X-Tudo returns for their weekly party, playing all your favorite hits from pop to mashups and rare grooves. This party has been rolling along for a few years now, being one of the only steady Wednesday night parties. Special themed editions are held at the Galeria Cafe in Ipanema, one of Rio’s most prominent and entertaining neighborhoods.
The term X-Tudo is a summary of everything that we can expect from Brazil. This GLB-friendly venue features everything Brazilian, including current remixes, B-sides, vintage hits, mashups, Latin music, and mpb. This party proves that Brazilian music still has room in the Carioca nightlife, mixing seamlessly with many other musical rhythms on the dance floor. No matter your taste or style, this party has a little bit of everything for everybody.
