We have been celebrating Brazilian culture in Arizona and the Southwest since the 80’s with the band Zúm Zúm Zúm, legendary for its infectious batucadas and unique expressions of many styles of Brazilian music.

Brazilian Carnaval  has been an annual event of Cultural Coalition since 1997, bringing together the finest Brazilian musicians living in the Phoenix area to share this exciting event with expatriate Brazilians and Valley residents. Now there is a new generation of Cultural Coalition musicians and dancers who have taken over this celebration which now takes place biannually: in February and September.
