Who’s Your Paddy, Campinas?!
Irish eyes were a smilin’…and singin’ and dancin’ at the 1st Annual AmSoc-Campinas St. Patrick’s Day Party. Hosted at the swanky Iff Lounge, Jennifer Licko, Ceol, and Charlotte Station brought the house down with ground shaking traditional Irish music and rock ‘n’ roll. The fiddle playing, bodhran [bow-rawn] beating, whistle jigging, and heart-pounding vocals had party goers stomping and clapping well into closing hours. The Cia Celta Brasil Dance Troupe wowed the crowd with their phenomenal Irish footwork and incredible toe tapping choreography...not to mention a raucous dance lesson or two.
The green icing on the cake was the mouthwatering Irish meal followed by a slap yo’ paddy Guinness chocolate cake expertly crafted by the Head Chef of Bellini Restaurant. Outstanding!
