Reviews of our shows


"Aché Brasil re-created the party atmosphere of "carnaval" in Bahia with a mix of acrobatic capoeira and butt-shaking sambas. The costumes were dazzlingly colourful..." The Georgia Straight (International Jazz Festival notes), Alex Varty, Tony Montague,
Ken Eisner and Jennifer Van Evra

“Describing Capoeira as a fusion of kickboxing, breakdancing, and samba would give you no idea of its grace or of its power. With lashing kicks, spins and continuous rolling cartweels, the dance involves the body’s spinning a carapace of movement around itself, or enclosing itself in a blur of vector lines.” -The Vancouver Sun, Lloyd Dyck

“The tent reverberated to the boom of the drums and the temperature soared. The energy of the band never slowed for the whole hour of their performance…Aché Brasil proved to be a super band.” The Yukon News, Al Pope

"Capoeira is a spectacular Afro-Brazilian dance form, derived from martial arts, that combines the power of kickboxing with the energy of break dancing and the grace of gymnastics." The Georgia Straight, Tony Montague

Your diverse music combined with your dynamic stage show kept the audience’s attention, and got them dancing in a way no other group at this year’s festival was able to do.” T.

"The performance yesterday was absolutely outstanding! All of our staff and students LOVED the show and raved about how much they enjoyed the music, storytelling, singing, dancing, acrobatics and funny antics of the performers. The students were highly engaged throughout the show and simply didn't want it to end.

The performers were so wonderful interacting with the students, involving them in the performance with the dancing, and making them laugh with all their funny and playful actions. We all appreciated learning about the Brazilian culture and language, as well as being introduced to a variety of new instruments. Yesterday's performance will surely be a treasured and memorable event for our school, and added great energy to our very special Read In celebration.

When trying to choose which performance group we might have come for our entertainment this year, I suggested Ache Brasil upon the recommendation of my 18 year old son who fondly remembered how much he was "wowed" by the group when they came to his elementary school many years ago.

The show was everything we had hoped it would be and more! Many thanks again to you and the performers for everything. We won't hesitate to recommend Ache Brasil to other schools, and will pass along the news of our great satisfaction to our parent organizations, ACSI and FISA."
