Carnaval is one of the most important Brazilian festivities and it is known as the Greatest Show on Earth. Kids and families in the matinee will enjoy the marchinhas (tradicional Carnaval songs), high-energy drums of batucada by Chicago Samba.
Whether you are Brazilian or any other nationality, bringing your family to the first Brazilian Carnaval Matinee. Help to promote awareness on how different cultures make our world a better and more fun place to live!
By exposing your children to other cultures, you help them to understand the concept of diversity, and give them the opportunity to learn about history, religion, geography, etc. They also learn to accept who are different rather than judge them.
Being kind and respectful go beyond borders. Celebrating with music and dance is a way to encourage the new generation to experience cross-cultural interactions.
