Brazilian Carnaval 2018 with Neguinho Da Beija Flor
Ace Hotel Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, PA
Share this event:




First time touring in the US, samba singer, composer and Brazilian star Neguinho da Beija-Flor brings the best of the Brazilian Carnaval to 10 locations including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Boston - and Pittsburgh! Accompanied by energetic bateria (drums) of Pittsburgh's own community drumming group, Timbeleza, and stunning samba dancer Luciana Brussi of Pittsburgh Samba Group, Neguinho da Beija-Flor is sure to deliver the best Carnaval experience you can possibly have outside Rio de Janeiro!

Mooka Entertainment will host the carnaval in collaboration with Pittsburgh Samba Group and Timbeleza, and sponsors Neumeyer Environmental, Green Forest Restaurant, and Keyla Cooks - Brazilian Flavors.

Neguinho is considered one of the most important Carnaval samba-enredo singers of all time. Since 1975 Neguinho has been affiliated with samba school Beija-Flor de Nilópolis, in Rio de Janeiro, which became part of his artistic name. In 1976, his samba-enredo Sonhar Com o Rei dá Leão gave him the first title in the carioca Carnaval. Since then, the samba school won 12 parade competitions, making Neguinho da Beija-Flor one of the most popular Carnaval figures of Brazil.

Son of a trumpeter of the famous Orquestra Tabajara, Neguinho started his career in music when he was still a kid. At 10 he won a contest by singing a samba by legendary carioca artist Jamelão. His first album, Vida No Peito, was released in 1980, followed by another 15 albums through 2000, featuring hits such as Os Cinco Bailes da História do Rio and Aquarela Brasileira. In 1991, he won the Sharp Prize as Best Samba Singer. In 2001, he released his first live-recorded CD, 25 Anos de Fé e Raiz, celebrating his 25-year career.
