Wednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Novo Lapa Jazz happens in Praça Albino Pinheiro in front of the Centro Cultural Carioca. The event is free, fun and takes place outdoors, but in case of rain, it will be canceled.
X-Tudo is also a summary of everything that we can expect from Brazil. It may be the “Brasilero” that our people gave the famous American sandwich, but the producers of the event can also be the perfect example creation. A party of everything Brazil; current amazing remixes, B-Sides, vintage hits, mashups, Latin music, and MPB.
