A Brazilian Festival in Philadelphia. Com certeza!

Com certeza! (koh-oong seh-teh-zah; Literally: With certainty!) translates to Of course! or Definitely!

If someone asks you Vai para a festa? (vah-ee pah-dah ah fehs-tah; Are you going to the party?), you can answer Com certeza!

WOW, only one week  till a Brazilian Festival in Newtown,  Bucks county, near Philadelphia with my friends Au Pairs from Go Au Pair Philadelphia.

 Vai para a festa?  Com certeza!

Definitely!!!  We are going to have a lot of fun-a costume party, a Brazilian food cooking class, a costume competition, games, Brazilian music and dance. Brazilian Au Pairs and I am very busy with the preparations.

Now I will tell you a little more about  my lindo maravilhosa (marvelous) Brazil.

We are also known for our most important party, one that bring people together in the states of Bahia (Northeast), Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Southeast): Carnival.

People get together in the streets or in arenas like Sapucaí (in Rio) and Sambódromo (in Sao Paulo) and watch the parade of floats and dancers present sambas about different themes related to our culture.

Every state and city offer something special, but Brazil’s most important ones are:

Sao Paulo: The Picture shows Paulista Ave.

Rio de Janeiro: Cristo Redentor.

Brazil’s music is also known worldwide. From Bossa Nova and Tropicalia to Axé and Rock.

From artists like Gilberto Gil

and Tom Jobin to Cazuza and  Ivete Sangalo.

Our most famous Music Festival has traveled around the world and came back to Brazil in 2011.

We’re also big on fashion. With fashion designers like: Alexandre Herchcovitch: (Stop drooling, ladies!)

And brands like:  Rosa Chá (Yep, that’s Naomi Campbell)

And Colcci:

And, well…Some of us are present in America’s runways and imagination:

My au-pairs friends, come join us!
