Bloco Alegria

Bloco Alegria


Bloco Alegria is Portland’s Rio-style samba band.

It is a community of people who love samba, and celebrate the music, dance and culture of Brasil. Playing the heart-pumping rhythms of Rio’s carnaval parades is what gives Bloco Alegria its unique sound and vibrancy.

Blocos in Brasil are bands that originated in various communities in Rio. Alegria means happiness in Portuguese.

Come dance at the Festival gates with Bloco Alegria Saturday morning, July 6.
