For this Brazilian Day celebration in association with the 28th Inffinito Brazilian Film Festival, Black women artists take center stage to showcase Brazilian music.

Supporting is the Latin GRAMMY-nominated singer, Larissa Luz, a self-identifying Afro-punk artist with an ethos rooted in Afrofuturism.

DJ Malfeitona will explore Brazilian music, especially from Bahia, and flip the script on tropical sounds mixing rock with Bahian pagodão.

The night includes a screening of the documentary Gerson King Combo, about the legendary singer and songwriter Gerson Cortez, known as the “Brazilian James Brown” for his magnetic personality and legacy for Black Brazilian people.
