Summer in Brazil: Festas Juninas, Capoeira, and the Museu da Língua Portuguesa

We are excited to share the second video of the 2024 Summer in Brazil series, where students Mali Weitzman and Olivia Shackelford share their experiences in São Paulo. Last week, the summer program was full of music, festivities, and touring the city. They learned about Festa Junina—look for the special appearance of Megwen Loveless— and Capoeira, visited the Museu da Língua Portuguesa, and even attended a Marisa Monte concert at the Universidade de São Paulo! Watch the video below and travel to Brazil with them. 



Summer in Brazil is a 6-week summer program sponsored by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University and the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies at Vanderbilt University. It caters to graduate and undergraduate students who wish to achieve a high-level of Portuguese fluency through immersion in Brazilian culture.
