Brasilipinas 2017 is a family fest!

BRASILIPINAS 2017 – It is no secret that I love to dance. And Brasilipinas has got to be one of the most fun parties we’ve been to as a family. Think of a street party bursting with samba and reggae beats, Brazilian food and drinks, beautiful people, and with things to do for the little ones as well.

Brasilipinas is an annual celebration of Brazilian and Filipino cultures, brought to you by Escola Brasileira de Capoeira Philippines. Rockwell will once again turn a little Brazilian on May 20, 2017!

Samba Reggae Summerfest

I will share with you some pictures of last year’s Brasilipinas. We just couldn’t resist the energizing beats of the band and these colourful dancers of Escuela de Samba de Manila. They got everyone dancing!

These soccer boys were doing all kinds of amazing tricks with a football. Football and dancing in one party can only be a Brazilian fiesta!  Also fun to watch were the graceful Capoeira demonstrations. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. This year, you can learn how to do Capoeira, or if you have some experience, kids and adults may join the competition.

Brasilipinas for the kids

My eldest had a great time with the ladies of Escuela de Samba de Manila, teaching her how to dance the samba. We saw parents dancing with their babies strapped to them in a carrier, and toddlers on their shoulders. The kids loved to watch all the demonstrations and the younger ones tried out the trampoline, face painting and arts & crafts. All free. The energy at Brasilipinas is just full of happiness and fun!

Tip: bring earplugs for the kids to protect those little eardrums. And since it’s the height of summer, make sure to bring lots of water, a face towel and an extra shirt. Food and drinks are available at several booths.

Capoeira Competition and Workshops

This year, Brasilipinas will be even bigger as they also host the first Open Capoeira Games for Kids & Adults. There will be special capoeira workshops & rodas, samba workshops and a Brazilian Carnaval Party with capoeiristas and guests from all over the world.
