Our Brazilian community came out en masse to celebrate Brazilian samba at the Diogo Nogueira concert at Karma DC on Friday, September 15! A renowned ambassador of Brazilian samba, Diogo sang samba hits and classics that physically and emotionally moved our audiences. We at EducArte are proud to bring artists like Diogo to the DC area since 2015.
Diogo Nogueira is one of the biggest names in Brazilian music today. Son of the legendary João Nogueira, Diogo is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and also a TV and radio personality. He has been nominated for a Latin GRAMMY for all of his albums and has won in the category “Best Samba Album” and “Best Brazilian Song.”
As an added benefit, Diogo’s celebrity model-actress Paolla Oliveira also joined the audience to sing along and dance to the show. Brazilians in the DMV never expected to meet and greet this beloved Brazilian actress known for her roles in Globo TV soap operas.
Diogo’s 10-day USA Samba Tour this fall featured his full 10-person band, giving audiences the full samba experience here in the United States. The pulsating energy in the space was palpable!
