Just as Olympic fever dies down, Barcelona turns up the samba with the eighth edition of Día de Brasil—a fun-filled celebration of music, authentic food, activities and film screenings. The aim of the festival, which attracted over 15,000 attendees last year, is to strengthen ties between Spain and the South American giant. From 12pm until 10.30pm, the Parc del Fòrum will be moving to a Brazilian beat with a stellar lineup of performers guaranteed to get the crowd moving, including Latin Grammy award-winning Brazilian singer Lenine, and some funky samba-rock fusion from the Caniball Football Club. In addition to the music, there will be a plethora of activities—from capoeira and samba demonstrations, to storytelling sessions and workshops for children. As part of the Festival de Cultura Brasileña, Día de Brasil will be followed by a series of film screenings, showcasing the best of Brazilian cinema today, at the Cinemes Girona from September 8th-11th.
