Festas Junina, June Festivals, (“festivities that occur in the month of June”), also known as festas de São João for their part in celebrating the nativity of St. John the Baptist, are the annual Brazilian celebrations adapted from European Midsummer that take place in the southern midwinter. The party is known for its traditional clothes, colors, decorations, games, and, of course, music! Join in dress the part and take part in the “costume contest” (costume not required)!
About the band: Seu Jacinto is the original Forró band from Texas. Based in Austin, Texas, Seu Jacinto is a music group interested in introducing and developing traditional Northeastern Brazilian culture to Central Texas. Our work as a grassroots collective has been focused on the traditional regional music forms of Northeastern Brazil, more specifically the state of Pernambuco and surrounding areas. The opportunity to share aspects of Brazilian culture that are generally overshadowed is a wonderful means for us to share our passion with the public, establish a community and add yet more flavor to our funky city. Our involvement with Brazilian folklore offers an exploration into its history, which led us to understand this colorful and diverse country. Our band has a very danceable show, with multiple singers, percussionists and a lineup that vary from 6 to 8 musicians. We have been playing together for over a decade on all types of venues around the state of Texas. A Seu Jacinto show is a guarantee of a fun show!
