Seeing Alô Brasil perform is always an amazing experience. The 12 member Philly-based samba band seems unassuming when they step into the room, but once they start playing they transform any space into the middle of a carnival parade in Rio . Their high energy percussion heavy music is can get the most hesitant wallflower up on their feet and dancing. Their live performances usually include costumed samba dancers, capoeira masters, and a large portion of Philly's Brazilian population in the audience.  Watch the video clip to get an idea of the Alô Brasil experience.
If this sounds like a great way to enjoy your weekend, then make your way to World Cafe Live this Saturday April 19th because Alô Brasil will be perform live. With the warmth of spring time starting to show its face, it's only right to celebrate with some sunny samba rhythms.
