They have also entertained at The National Theatre and London's Barbican Centre as well as countless jazz clubs and festivals nationwide.

It was magical. I glanced around the hall a couple of times during the performance and all I could see was a sea of transfixed, happy faces. Organiser, Village Hall Event, Nottinghamshire

The group specialise in both classic samba and choro (samba’s instrumental “twin” style). Imagine a Brazilian version of Cuba’s legendary Buena Vista Social Club and you’ll get the idea. Always professional, well-dressed and happy to adapt to your requirements, Brazil Connection are available in a range of line-ups: the quartet is their most popular line-up, but they can expand into a quintet and sextet, which are recommended for dancing.

The band also offer a duo for afternoon entertainment or smaller events, please visit the Brazil Connection Duo page for more information.

Commentator, Brazilian Music & Culture Magazine, January 2018

“Thank you all so much for such a superb night's entertainment. It was magical. I glanced around the hall a couple of times during the performance and all I could see was a sea of transfixed, happy faces. We've put on quite a few of these shows now and I have never seen one of our audiences so obviously thrilled.”
