Bristol Community College’s LusoCentro and Dr. Ulli K. Ryder, Dean of Arts and Humanities are pleased to invite you to the annual celebration of Portuguese Language Day on Thursday, May 2, beginning at 9 a.m., in the Jackson Arts Center (H-Building), on the Bristol Fall River Campus, 777 Elsbree Street. This event is FREE and open to the public.
This year’s exciting program includes dance, music, literature and film, featuring the vibrant rhythms, colors, and flavors of Brazil. Among the attractions, you can expect a performance by the “Quarteto Band”, showcasing a potpourri of the different sounds of Brazil, a performance of “capoeira” (a mix of martial arts and dance form originated among Brazilian slaves), and a dance performance traveling through the different rhythms of Brazil such as samba, frevo, forró, and funk.
After the performances, at 12:00pm, Azorean/Portuguese and Brazilian traditional treats, water and “guarana” (a traditional Brazilian soda) will be served.
