    From June 14th to 17th, Los Angeles will become a piece of Brazil. It is when the city hosts the 2nd Annual International Samba Congress (ISC), the biggest celebration of samba outside of Brazil. This four-day event is a gathering of over 30 experts of Brazilian dance, music, culture, and history for classes, workshops, lectures, and performances.

    The event starts with the Grand Open Gala Pioneer of Samba Night, which will honor the singing legend Dionne Warwick for her work at Recicla Vidas (Recycle Lives), a charity in the favelas of Vidigal, in Rio de Janeiro. Dionne has supported different social projects in Brazil for decades.
