LITTLE BRAZIL

by

Are quadrilha and xaxado a) a new type of bigger, scarier bedbug, b) this year’s swine flu, or c) two types of Brazilian dance that you can learn at Festa Junina and Other Traditions from the Brazilian Northeast. Yes, c is correct (phew!). At Festa Junina (or June Festival), you can sip hot wine, try tasty traditional dishes, observe the graceful capoeiristas, hear improvised poetry to the berimbau, and get a complimentary dance lesson.
