6 p.m.-9 p.m. The Seasons Performance Hall is excited to bring you Mardi Gras Show Brazil! The soul of the Brazilian culture in a high energetic performance. Internationally recognized and respected Show Brazil!, well known throughout the Northwest from events such as Bumbershoot and Brasilfest, has delighted audiences in the United States and Canada for nearly twenty years. The ensemble features accomplished performers. Show Brazil!s band leader and Music Director Eduardo Mendonça, a native of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, traces his lineage to a royal African family bearing the hereditary title of Mamabeka ("prophet of the royal court"), as documented by the Instituto Geográfico e Histórico da Bahia. Eduardo had the honor to play for Pope John Paul IIs welcome to Brazil, former South Africa President Nelson Mandela (Seattle,WA - USA - 1999), Brazilian President João Baptista Figueiredo (Brazil 1979), and was also featured in a Paul Simon documentary video in 1991.
