Enjoy the Feel of Brazilian Carnival on the City Hall Lawn Sunday

By Lookout Staff

August 3 -- Spend a lazy late afternoon relaxing in the sun or lounging in the cool shade while taking in the joyful rhythms of Brazil, Brasil as Jazz on the Lawn returns to Santa Monica Sunday.

Sponsored by the City’s Cultural Affairs Division, this year’s inaugural concert features dynamic Brazilian singers Ana Gazzola and Sonia Santos backed by a host of talented musicians who make use of unique and authentic percussive instruments to deliver the passion, enthusiasm and excitement of popular Brazilian music.

The Los Angeles Times wrote, "Gazzola and Santos have developed a musical formula based on a slick, well-crafted display of movement and music. Their vocal togetherness as brightly colored as their outfits."

While L.A.Jazz Scene said, "The intensity of Santo's voice and the cool sensuality of Gazzola's, blend and complement each other with delightful chemistry making Brasil Brazil's distinctive sound an irresistible one."

Sunday’s concert, which begins at 5 p.m. on the City Hall lawn, is the first of four Sunday concerts this month courtesy of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission’s Free Concerts in Public program.

The other shows August 12th, 19th, and 26th present dazzling jazz ensembles on the lawn in front of City Hall and feature tap dancing, cool trumpet sounds and salsa.

“Bring your friends, your family and a picnic dinner to this series of free outdoor concerts where you can spread a blanket on the grass, stretch out in your lawn chair and doze in the shade of your own beach umbrella and enjoy the coolest breezes and hottest sounds in all of LA,” read a statement released by the Cultural Affairs Division.
