Join us at be’kech on Sunday 9th December at 19:30 for a special night of samba music and history!

Once Brazilians abroad reveal where they come from, they always have to deal with the inevitable question: “Can you dance samba?”. Therefore, why not understand our history – which goes a lot further than beautiful women shaking their bodies while guys play music?

Samba is deeply related to Brazilian History, the Africa diaspora, and the Rio urbanisation plan. Come to learn our history, hear some fun facts and stories, and – of course – listen and dance to Samba! This night will be about the music genre, stories and people.
