AlĂ´ Brasil, consisting of twelve Philadelphia musicians spanning three generations, was born out of a passion for Brazilian music. Accompanied by stunningly costumed dancers, the band draws audiences into a "tornado of rhythm and sound" (Philadelphia City Paper) â€” an irresistible, full body-and-soul experience. Whether parading down Broad Street, opening for gala events or awards ceremonies at Philadelphia''s top venues, or captivating hundreds of revelers at local nightspots, AlĂ´ Brasil never fails to enchant. The bandâ€™s repertoire is rooted in African influenced rhythms (samba batucada, samba reggae, pagode, maracatĂş, ijexĂˇ), and others, from many different regions of Brazil.
