CARNAVAL was great! Here are some pics taken by Alex Niella of the Brazilian Carnaval at the Hollywood Palladium. Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro did a pandeiro duet with Scott Kettner from Nation Beat. My costume was made by the incredible Brad Austin! More pics at www.braziliannites.com

VIVER BRASL DANCE COMPANY
Saturday, March 14 at 8pm
Celebrate Dance @ Alex Theater, Glendale, CA Viver Brasil performs So Moved (In Motion) www.celebratedance.org
DJAVAN (Born in Alagoas in January, 1949) is one of my favorite composers. This song is called AZUL (Blue) and it does not have any sad connotation. In Brasil if you say everything is blue, it means everything is cool.
BRAZILIAN SOCCER (From Brasil to Los Angeles)
The Best Brazilian female soccer in the world is now playing in Los Angeles (SOL). Her name is Marta and she’s from Alagoas…just like Brazilian musician Djavan…
TWO BRAZILIAN GIRLS HANGING FROM THE SKY
I was laughing with my husband and said "Let's go to the Circus!" My cell rang and a shy Brazilian female voice said she had seen me at the Brazilian Carnaval and would like to be part of my show one day. She said she was a Trapeze artist...I love synchronicity! Check them out. They are great!
Eu não sei se vem de Deus
I don’t know if it comes from God
O céu ficar azul
This blue of the sky
Ou virá dos olhos seus
Or if comes from your eyes
Essa cor que azuleja o dia
This color that “tiles” the day
(Excerpt of Azul by Djavan)
My way of expressing how much I’m grateful for your support:
With Knowledge, you open your eyes.
With Intelligence, you begin to see,
With Imagination, you paint the Universe.
Peace and Light.
