This event has finished

Rustic charm is usually hard to come by amidst São Paulo’s concrete landscape, but this month brings Brazil’s countryside into the city with an abundance of festa junina parties – countrified gatherings – including this musical tribute to the sertão region in SP’s greenest space, Ibirapuera Parque.

Kicking off the festivities, Irmãos Aniceto, a centuries-old institution from the state of Ceará, continues its tradition of folkloric major-key fife-and-drum performance, complete with synchronised moves and matching outfits.

Perhaps less mercurial with his moves than the Irmãos, the lively, gleeful melodies from octogenarian Chico Paes de Assaré’s quick fingers continue to impress, solidifying his reputation as an accordian virtuoso. Rounding out the night of down-home fun, Joquinha Gonzaga (nephew of the King of Baião, Luiz Gonzaga) and his band continue in the footsteps of his legendary uncle and the Pernambucan musical style he helped to create.
