City Hall Presents series kicks off tomorrow with Alo Brasil
Tomorrow evening, the folks at City Hall Presents will kick off this summer’s lineup of free concerts with a performance by multi-disciplinary Brazilian music troupe Alô Brasil. The eleven-piece band was recently featured in a Key Studio Session, while band leader Alex Shaw played solo for the XPN Philly Local Buskers’ series at The Porch at 30th Street Station. Tomorrow, they’ll perform in their full ensemble – accompanied by dancers – which is how we’ll be seeing them this summer at the XPoNential Music Festival. For more information, visit the City Hall Presents website. Below, watch a video of Alô Brasil performing the carnival festival at World Cafe Live in 2008, and download “Capoeira Medley” from their Key Studio Session.
