After a dinner at my new favorite restaurant Nene I was forced to go to the Brazilian carnival party at Mao livehouse led by Tinho Pereira’s nine-person Tempero do Brasil band. They provided contemporary Brazilian music along with classic samba beats to soundtrack the festivities here in Shanghai, aiming to bring a bit of the Rio spirit to town- I don’t know if they managed that well but I did get really interested going to Rio again for the real deal…next year maybe..
