Verified profile

Rio Brass was founded in 2018 with the intention of bringing the tradition of Carnival Blocos to Europe. Every year thousands gather in Rio streets and clubs to celebrate Carnival and to listen and party to the music of the many different Blocos "street bands" that the city has to offer. With that in mind, trumpeter and founder of Rio Brass Gabriel Dias, who is originally from Rio and has studied music at the Juilliard School in New York created the group by arranging and rehearsing popular songs from both the UK and Brazil. Rio Brass has already performed in many different venues in the UK and more recently performed in Capri, Italy. The band has the mission to honour the Bloco tradition of celebrating music and life in Europe. Viva o Carnaval!
