In the spirit of all things festa junina ('June party', the traditional winter solstice celebrations that are just as likely to take place in July or August as June) Circo Voador brings out the bunting once more to mark nine years of Arraiá do Circo, the annual bow to the great traditions of the country’s north-eastern states. Tents brimming with the region’s food and typical games are set to occupy the usually rather more refined, palm-lined courtyard under the famous Lapa arches, gig-goers replaced by costumed, gap-toothed hay-chewers perched atop straw bales fishing for prizes.

Gracing the stage will be the folk-dance of Grupo Zanzar along with live forró and MPB from Da Ladeira and Geraldo Azevedo. In the forty-odd years since making his debut record in 1972 with fellow Pernambucan Alceu Valença, the MPB and forró star Azevedo has released 19 albums, most notably the triple platinum O Grande Encontro 1 in 1996. No stranger to these events, Azevedo knows a thing or two about getting the flannel-shirted crowds going.

Show-closers Da Ladeira are the forró band conceived in the UK and led by Azevedo’s son, Lucas Amorim, the man behind the scene in England where he hosts the annual Forró Fest.
