Brasil Summerfest | July 21 - 28, 2012

The Brasil Summerfest is back in New York this year with a fresh new lineup of critically-acclaimed artists. Founded and curated by Petrit Pula in 2011, the festival was created as a platform to highlight the music and culture of Brazil.
This year, the festival opened on July 21st with an arrangement of performances at Central Park SummerStage. Criolo, MTV Brazil's Best New Artist in 2011, is one special feature of the festival. He artfully blends Brazilian rhythms including samba, soul, Afro-funk and rock riffs which he assembles with hip-hop beats and flow. Another special feature is Flavio Renegado, a hip hop artist  who incorporates the sounds of reggae, maracatu, Cuban music, African rhythms, and samba.
