Musicians often cultivate a dynamic stage persona by filling their shows with multiple costume changes, elaborate choreography, and family-vacation slideshows. Feast your eyes and ears on a thrilling performance with today's GrouponLive deal: for $6, you get one general-admission ticket to Carnaval do Brazil, presented by Afro:Baile Records, at 910 Live in Tempe on Saturday, February 4, at 9 p.m. (a $12 value). Doors open at 8 p.m.
Afro:Baile Records transforms the Valley into an exotic celebration of Brazilian culture during its third annual Carnaval do Brazil, which has reeled in the attention of such media outlets as Fox 10 News and Latino Perspectives Magazine. The yearly showcase of authentic Brazilian music and dance directs the spotlight toward artists flown in from across the globe, fusing a colorful medley of Carnaval elements into one energized gala. As attendees shake their hips to the samba, groove to the tribal beats of batucada, and frantically write revised lyrics on napkins to the ethereal sounds of capoeira, multitalented performers sashay across the stage sheathed in eye-dazzling costumes and elaborate accessories. The lively bill of Carnaval do Brazil includes a cast of tuneful artists such as Quetzal Guerrero, Axe Folclorico, and DJ Seduce. Additionally, homemade Brazilian food and drinks (not included with today's Groupon) help recharge dancing batteries, and giveaways and prizes reward best-dressed attendees and guests who can most successfully morph into a human maraca.
