Dar es salaam music fans will be treated to most of the Grupo Raiz band which is expected to colour Brazil Week to mark the country’s 190th years of independence scheduled starting at the Serena Hotel today.
The band has already arrived in the country ahead of the festival that has been kindly sponsored by Hennessy’s Cognac and the host hotel, according to the event co-coordinator, Omar Salisbury, who is the marketing manager for Qway International.
Salisbury said the Brazil Week celebration is part of a huge effort by the Embassy of Brazil in Tanzania to foster cultural ties and understanding between people of the two countries.
He said visitors to the Brazil Week festivities at the hotel should expect to be treated to a fresh menu of authentic Brazilian food with many of the ingredients being flown in from Mozambique.
“This is very important festival as all guests would be entertained by the best music from Grupo Raiz. We expect the exciting event for the whole festival,” said Salisbury.
He said this as a great opportunity for Hennessy to be involved with bringing cultures and ultimately people together. The Brazil Week celebrations will end on Saturday.
“The brand Hennessy has been bringing people together for nearly 250 years and we see this as a dynamic opportunity for people in Tanzania to experience authentic Brazilian culture, cuisine and music as well as some very unique Hennessy cocktails that are being mixed specially for this event,” he concluded.
