RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Local NGO (non-profit) Favela Brass will start its own Carnival celebrations this year, with a performance on Praia do Flamengo this Saturday morning, January 28th. The recital will begin at 9AM next to Posto 2, and parade along Flamengo until 11:30 AM.
The children who make up Favela Brass will perform a selection of musical numbers for their audience, but the event differentiates itself from Rio’s traditional Carnival parades, with a jazz focus instead of the traditional samba rhythms of Carnival.
Children performing will showcase a rare performance . . .
