It’s HOT in Itacaré and getting hotter! The streets are over flowing with people from all over Brasil and other parts of the world: London, Vienna, Santiago del Chile, New York, Réunion, Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, Oslo, Milan.
So far the New Year promises sun, fun, live music, and plenty of parties.
On Saturday, January 5th, the year starts off with Jau & Diamba at Cabana Corais located on Concha Beach. The show begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are available at various shops in town.
The following day, Sunday, January 6th, American musician and surfer, Donavon, will give a FREE performance on Tiririca Beach in the evening … sometime after 5 p.m.
On the main road called Pituba …
Sham Rock & Blues Bar which opened a few months ago, offers an eclectic line up of local musicians playing MPB, blues, and rock every night this summer after 8 o’clock. It is a cozy spot for any game lover and fan of alternative music. Plus every Monday evening, there is an “open mic” session that draws an enthusiastic crowd.
Of course, you don’t want to miss the action at the popular bars, Jungle and Favela. Both bars host daily parties that bleed into the wee hours of the morning with DeeJays, bands, and street performances.
If you’re looking to escape the crowds on the beach or Pituba, visit Boteco da Vila (the Blue House) Wednesday through Saturday evenings and relax to the sounds of soul singers, bossa nova and MPB musicians, and enough chocolate to satisfy any addict.
For a Saturday night of sweating, stop by Casarão Amarelo (the Yellow House) for live samba music and lots of dancing. The last time I was there, I believe I lost 5 pounds despite the two or three beers I had. Like Boteca da Vila, they are also located along the Orla where there is an incredible view and refreshing breeze.
Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year!!
