The huge throng of people celebrating Brazil Day in Canada eagerly await the main act, Ivete Sangalo! We were lucky that here she performed a free outdoor concert, whereas in New York she had a concert inside the Madison Square Gardens. There are many warmup acts before Ivete arrives:









also other party events this weekend!!





the emcee for the show is a famous television personality from Brazil; Serginho Groisman





Here she comes!! The crowd goes berserk:

and of course after the end of the concert, one needs to have a drink and eat some good Brazilian food!







DELICIOUS!!!



we chose the Picanha, feijão com arroz, farofa, and of course a Brahma!!!



People also watched and celebrated from nearby restaurant patios up on this building:





The DJ's took over, and the Square became a big dance party into the evening.







I will post more photos over in my "Hot off the Press" photothread. You can see them here:

Wow, looks like people were having a great time there! You're a really good photographer, can't imagine how hard it might have been to take those shots.

Unfortunatelly I'm not really into Axé music, I prefer samba, rock, MPB...

Thanks, guys! Much appreciated. You can get Globo here, too (we do) as a speciality channel. Later Globo will show both the New York and Toronto Brazil Day festivities. They make it into a special! Fun to watch last years.
Brahma is fairly popular; at least in Toronto. I like it very much!

I'd say most of the crowd were people born in Brazil. The same entertainers, and Serginho were in New York the day before, and then flew to Toronto for the Monday party. He was the host last year, too. The party's biggest sponsor is Globo television.

Well, that is a difficult question. To be honest, I find Canadians very friendly and I found people in Brazil to be very friendly, too. I've been in Brazil, and people do not behave it is a party like this on a day to day basis there. They get up in the morning, brush their teeth, eat breakfast, go to work, come home, eat dinner, pay bills, etc.... just like everywhere else. They don't treat strangers on the street any differently than we would here. People like to generalize and stereotype and put everyone into a nice, neat little box, so they tend to say people from country A are cold and people from country B are warm, etc..(it even happens here within our own country when one area wants to feel better about themselves than another area). To me, I get warm reactions from people whom I give warm feelings to. If I am friendly, I get friendliness back. So, I try not to make stereotypes about entire nations as I find I have an easy time meeting people everywhere I go!

One barrier can be language, however.... if you visit a country and cannot speak the language or do not have an interpretor with you, it can seem very cold and unfriendly, as you cannot
communicate fully with the people.
