As an official “Friend” of this year’s Cine Fest Petrobras, BrazilNYC will be co-sponsoring the New York premiere of Tempos de Paz (Time of Peace), Daniel Filho’s celebrated World War II historical drama starring Tony Ramos and Dan Stulbach.
The most important Brazilian celebration of the year – Carnival – takes over one of New York City’s most acclaimed nightclubs. And at the helm, Dj Mario Calegari provides the soundtrack with flavorful Brazilian beats and elegant Portuguese melodies. Ralph Berr opens the night.
Come see a real Carnival Block Party (i.e. Bloco de Carnaval) at The Sullivan Room.

With a repertoire ranging from Brazilian Bossa nova, Samba and MPB (Brazilian popular music), to American favorites and some of her own compositions, Marianni returns to the New Your house that helped build her East Coast fan base. Marianni has performed live at Zinc several times since her debut album Swimming to the Moon came out in 2005.
