Malaysia-Brasil Cross Culture Event 2014 Press Conference

Nicknamed as "Selamat Datang Brasil 2014" this event is a cross cultural event where it will showcase Brazilian and Malaysian cultures. Being held for the first time in Malaysia, it plans to commenced this year's event from 24th October 2014 till 26th October 2014 where it will be held at Avenue K. The 3 day event will be packed with energy and fun with Brazilian and Malaysian themed workshops, performances, games and other things.

The press conference that I went to were aptly held at this Brazilian Steakhouse at Avenue K:
I then had a nice savor of some of the Brazilian food that this place offered. But of course, the day wasn't meant to be a review of the food there but the focal point rather is on the Malaysia-Brasil Cross Culture Event that's coming soon.

After being introduced on it by the host:
We were treated with glimpses of what's to come during the "Selamat Datang Brasil 2014" event.

This included some Brazilian music:
Samba dancing:
And Capoeira performances:
By the way, there's a Capoeira School that's based in Mont Kiara and Bangsar Sports complex. Besides teaching Capoeira, the culturally rich Brazilian martial art, they also teach other Brazilian cultural expressions and dance such as Samba, Brazilian Afro, Maculelê, Puxada de Rede and more.

The event, is open for public viewing and participation. For some of the workshops that you want to participate in, you don't need any prior knowledge nor skill but do take note that some of the workshops will require a fee.

This event is also set out to be an Eco Friendly one. Meaning to say that their performance props and material are used from recycled substance such as plastic water bottles and used magazines. There will also be a children's workshop where eco-friendly will be the theme to teach them about recycling and the importance of reusing and reducing waste.

This event is supported by the Embassy of Brazil in Kuala Lumpur and the schedule of events are as follows:
