    A vibrant afternoon of music and culture kicks off the Brazil 2014 World Cup. The event features a concert by Nation Beat, whose totally original 21st-century fusion of thunderous maracatu drumming, New Orleans rhythms, Appalachian music, funk, and country-blues brings a wild energy to the New York City waterfront, along with the percussion ensemble Maracatu NY.  Live capoeira demonstrations by Raízes do Brasil Capoeira Brooklyn continue the festivities, which will culminate in a traditionalroda – a circle of music and dance – on the Waterfront Plaza.
