BACILLE BRASIL is a rich musical hybrid of two of the most talented cornerstone groups of the Brazilian music scene in Ottawa: Florquestra Brasil and Roda de Samba. Bringing together some of Ottawa's top Brazilian musicians, the group crosses samba with forro and fuses the fever of the frevo with the famous marchas de carnaval and the mischievous xote (pronounce sho-tchee). A perfect match of the percussive and highly energetic street carnival with the harmonic refinement of Brazilian strings, BACILLE BRASIL brings the spirit of Carnaval 2013 to Ottawa's 'Taste of Brazil' Carnaval Party!

When & Where
The Mercury Lounge has been a Mecca for the arts in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, since its inception in November 1996. Its programming purports a musical vision steeped in the traditions of jazz and yet forward in its approach to encompass all its many derivatives. Through its dynamic programming, the Mercury Lounge has successfully connected the dots, uniting jazz with contemporary electronic break beat culture. Within its walls the very philosophy of jazz, that of change, abounds. It serves not only as a club, and live venue, but also for poetry readings, dance performances and art gallery.
