About the Event

Savor this taste of Afro-Brazilian culture with Project Capoeira in collaboration with special guests Cleonice and Nildinha Fonseca and José Zé Ricardo Sousa directly from Bahia, Brazil. The ensemble will perform a colorful, crowd-pleasing repertoire of Afro-Brazilian folkloric dances such as orixás, Samba de Roda, and capoeira, the martial art that fuses rhythmic music with high-energy gymnastics. Don’t miss this get-out-of-your-seat-and-move performance, part of Philadelphia’s Brazilian Day celebration.

Tickets include access to the Barnes collection.

Make sure to head outside to Philadelphia's largest covered porch! Cocktails and light fare for purchase. Limited seating available.
