A colourful second anniversary

Braziliality celebrates two years with music, dance, football and fundraising

It was the promotion of Brasilian culture in London which brought Soho’s Cafe 16mm and producer Alicia Bastos together.

They had the location, she had the concept, thus Braziliality was born. The project explores Brasilian cultural references, but not necessarily artists only from Brasil; they can be Brasilians abroad, in Brasil with an international career, or foreigners influenced by Brasil. “The name Braziliality comes from Brasilian reality, which also means ‘Brasilianess’ in a loosen translation”, says Alicia.

The partnership worked so well it now celebrates 2 years, in style, with The World Fun Cup at Favela Chic, a ‘humorous hangover’ from the World Cup, with a keepy ups competition, table football, live music, a short film and a dance by Everaldo Pereira. In association with the ABC Trust, the fundraising party also promotes their Bedfordshire festival, Festinho, and Heather McClell and Natema from 2010’s line up. Surely the foundations of many a Brasil-tinted partnership to come.
