Artist Spotlight – Tropicalia
Our Artist Spotlight feature is where we focus on one of our performers, giving you the chance to find out more about the people behind the performances, and offering an insight into the world of entertainment bookings. Here’s our Artist Spotlight on Tropicalia – Brazilian Dance & Music Show:
Tropicalia Latin Brazilian Show is a Multi Award Winning vibrant London based established company wholly run by professional artists with International experience. They are the only Latin Brazilian Ensemble in the UKto have won 3 LUKAS – The First and only recognized Award by public vote for Latino Culture in the UK. Since 2003 Tropicalia has provided the Best and Most unique Latin Brazilian Show Entertainment including live music, singing and dance with up to 20 or more Musicians, Dancers and performers available. They have vast experience, working in the entertainment industry for over 15 years internationally.
“We wanted to create a fresh and innovative performance and blow some new life into the traditional entertainment scene.We believed that our different artistic experiences could produce something with the potential of breaking the Latin/Brazilian entertainment market and so far so good”.
“All of our musicians and dancers are qualified and professionally trained. We are a full time working Show band pretty much involved in any aspect of our profession: touring, session and recording studio, musicians, dancers and workshop classes, touring Productions etc”.
“Our favourite thing about performing in the events industry is the Creativity! Producing your own show gives you the power to choose your songs, make your musical arrangements, create choreography and design costumes. You can drive the creativity and talent of the people working with you onto your project creating positive energy which will be reflected on stage. The appreciation for your performance by the audience that’s the best feeling an artist can have ever.”
“Some advice for somebody who wants to get into your line of work is just to be focused on the project and creer and believe in what you are able to do and create. Be aware of how the industry develops and which direction it moves to. That is a source to pick up ideas from.”
“Being working with Contraband for 10 years it is almost impossible to recall all the events we have performed at. However, if we have to pick one, we would say the Starbucks Event at the Barbican and Brewery”.
“Receiving applause and compliments by members of the audience is always very rewarding because it means that you have delivered a good job and this is pretty much what our profession is all about. Worst experience? To be treated with no respect for our profession. Fortunately that doesn’t happen very often”.
“I am sure a lot of artists would agree with me having experienced situation where you have been offered 3 sandwiches and some crisps over 8 hours working day or being offered a toilette as a changing room”.
“As we are a themed act we are pretty much focused on new music and dance coming from Brazil and Latin America in general. Then we try to create a mixed production Show with artistic trendy element from Europe and America”.
“It’s impossible to mention all the other entertainers we admire the most! Any way, we really admire the old school artists, those who even after decades are still there going strong and have created a trademark in the industry”.
“Working in the entertainment industry is definitely different from an 8 to 5 job in general, particularly when it comes to planning things in your life. You never know what will happen next day, week or month. A bit crazy life but still very exciting!”…
“This unpredictability does affect your family and social life though and as everything else in life it will end up to make a compromise where you can give and take according to your work commitments.
Although the Musician’s Union is doing its best to regulate and control the industry wage for artists of any field (particularly West End, Teachers and Opera Ballet) still out there is a jungle and most of the time rules are ignored, partially or not applied at all, especially when it comes down to corporate”.
“It would be a benefit for everybody to create a minimum, decent wage/rider for artists performing at corporate, Clubs, Pubs, LIVE music venues etc. At present the market doesn’t have such regulation which, from our point of view, is wrong”.
“We currently are working on a new show for the 2014 featuring new choreography and costumes the band is also expanding the repertoire with new songs re-arranged with a Brazilian and/or Latin twist”.

Here’s what Tropicalia – Brazilian Dance & Music Show’s clients said:
It is with great pleasure I write this testimonial for Tropicalia Latin Brazilian Show. In Q4 of 2012 we contacted various agencies for a Brazilian Band and dance troupe to perform in Doha, Qatar. After careful analysis we had chosen Tropicalia purely for their past credentials and testimonials. I personally found Leo, Co-founder of Tropicalia and the whole Production Team very easy to work with, creative, extremely helpful and always going out of the their way to further enhance the production. The event in Qatar was extremely unique, with Royal family as guests, ministers and other dignitaries, attending the evening programme, all for SDC 8th Charity Gala Dinner. Tropicalia was able to choreograph a specially produced dance to adhere to cultural sensitivities within the Middle East region, which I found outstanding and very accommodating. The finale of the evening composed of an 11 piece band and 16 person dance troupe to close the evening and bid our guests farewell. I would very much recommend Tropicalia as an entertainment highlight for any event.
QMDI Event Manager – Qatar

Eclipse Total Event Success – Starbucks
With the 2016 Olympics being hosted by Brazil Gravesham Borough Council contracted Tropicalia to perform their Latin Brazilian Show as a prelude to its live screen broadcasting the closing ceremony of London 2012. Over 1,500 people came to watch the show which was full of colour, music and dance. Leading up to the event contact was maintained through their management, who dealt with any issue (large or small) in an outstanding professional manner. I would strongly recommend this show to any organisation wishing to capture the electric atmosphere of Brazil and its Olympic venue – Rio de Janeiro
Gravesham Borough Council
I wish to say a very BIG thank you for your fantastic Latin dancers at our party at Studio Valbonne last Thursday eve. What a fantastic addition to our party they were amazing!
Credit Suisse – Christmas party
Bright, colourful, energetic, moving, powerful and emotional. Our wedding day wouldn’t have been complete without the pure passion and love we felt from Tropicalia. As a team they truly make the experience unique and comparable to no other. Tailoring a specific routine and performance based on what we wanted, whilst including songs of our choice and even learning a completely new song to accommodate. I couldn’t have wished for a better team, from beginning to end it has been wonderful and I am ever so sad it’s over. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a alternative to a typical wedding or event. You cannot go wrong with Tropicalia, they are a team who make colourful dreams come true!
We had booked the show for a corporate event and everyone loved it. Leo and the girls are highly professional, Beautiful, charming and very lovely to deal with. I hope we can book them again in the future! Thanks again for the great show and lovely presence.
Tropicalia – absolutely fantastic! Leo, the band leader, is lovely, incredibly professional and very helpful, he did everything we asked and the whole band and dancers gave our 700 guests the party they were looking for! Superb music, amazing costumes and endless energy! I can honestly say they were very well worth the fee and I’d highly recommend them to anyone wanting a slick – but enormous fun – band.
The Negotiator Awards 2014
We hired Tropicalia and they were just fantastic from the way the girls were dressed greeting our guests, the background soft music during the Champagne reception to the evening show that was unbelievably good. The costumes were amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Tropicalia for any event and will certainly be looking to use them again in the future should we require a Brazilian show again. The band was a pleasure to deal with and Leo was exceptional in his details prior to the event.
Tony Hadley Golf Classic
We booked Tropicalia for our company Christmas party 2013 and our theme was Brazil in anticipation of the FIFA World Cup 2014 and the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 2016. Our guests got straight into the party mood as they were welcomed by the beautiful and colourful dancers for photo shooting. The show, dance and capoeira performances were fantastic and people definitely enjoyed it. A special thanks to Leo and the all crew as they came early to the venue to get ready in time, which was much appreciated. If you think about Brazilian themed event, I cannot think about anybody else.
You were amazing. We really didn’t need a disco, you kept everyone on their feet all night. I have fed back to Martin what a fantastic act you are. I will be telling all my fellow agents that I know to book you. SO pleased and hope to work with you again. Regards
DSA Event Conference
We had an amazing night, really enjoyed the Brazilian dance show. The dancers certainly made the party and got everybody in the mood. Friendly, personable and professional – exactly what I was looking for.
