Brazilian Nites Productions presents the 13th annual "Brazilian Carnaval: Exotica," the largest Carnaval celebration on the West Coast at L.A. Live's Club Nokia on March 2nd. This exhilarating annual celebration of spectacular sights, sounds and revelry is the most anticipated in Brazil. Brazilian Nites once again brings the true party spirit of Brazil to Angelenos with an All Star band of highly acclaimed international musicians, curated by Chalo Eduardo (who performed with Sergio Mendes, Santana, Mickey Hart, & Ricky Martin). The night is hosted by two Brazil Natives., Dr. Robert M. Rey from the hit television show Dr. 90210 and model and reporter Giselle Claudino. DJ Chris Brazil spins additional Brazilian dance hits and the special guest band Bloco Nove will grace the Exotica stage. The true essence of Carnaval continues with authentic Brazilian food and drinks. Attendees are invited to join in a high-energy drum circle by Remo and a parade of the titillating and elaborately dressed, elite Samba Dancers. Costumes are encouraged. Brazilian Carnaval: Exotica 2013 continues its partnership with the nonprofit charity The Painted Turtle, providers of an innovative camp and family care center for children with life threatening illnesses.
