Starting: 8:00 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM.

Experience the high energy of Rio de Janeiro's Carnaval when Grammy-nominated Brazilian band Monobloco takes over the North Beach Bandshell on Friday, July 1. Named after the street bands that parade during carnaval ("bloco"), Monobloco is a celebrated group of musicians that rose to fame as one of the top performing blocos during Carnaval. Unlike other carnaval street bands that primarily play samba, Monobloco's fresh take on carnaval music combines a mix of rhythms such as coco, ciranda, marchinha, xote, samba, contemporary R&B, samba-rock and funk. Their popularity among Brazilian youth led to their rise as a touring ensemble that has performed extensively around Brazil as well as internationally. Monobloco has also released several albums, both studio and live.

This special performance is co-presented by Brazilian Nights and The Rhythm Foundation.
