Day 1 Natal
In the evening, guests will be picked up from their hotels in Natal to begin this tour. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations. Tonight, we will head to an open-air night club where Brazilian rhythms heat up the scene. We will feel beats move us, from the Carimbo style of the Amazon, the Samba of Rio de Janeiro, and the Frevo of Pernambuco to the Forro of the northeast, the Maculele, and the Capoeira of Bahia. The dances of Brazil's immigrant cultures are represented as well, and we will see a Repentista, or Embolador de Coco (coconut), a typical character in Rio Grande do Norte's popular songs. Afterwards, guests will be returned to their hotels, ending this tour.
