The culture of Brazil, rich and diverse has intensively begun to spread across Europe through various artistic expressions – samba batteries, electronic music, samba dance and capoeira. Artkor team has recognized this trend and decided to bring it closer to Serbia and Novi Sad. Accordingly, for several years in a row, Artkor has organized a series of summer events called ‘’Bossanoga’’, with the goal to promote Brazilian music, from traditional pagode to modern samba funk and electronic music. For the past two years, this association was the organizer of the festival called ‘’Days of Brazil’’, first festival in Novi Sad that celebrates Brazilian culture.
