Sarava! Wild Carnival was a dream come true.
It was so beautiful to see people having a blast while enjoying Brazilian culture. We really put our wild hearts into this party and it paid off. Next is our show Inside the Wild Heart opening on October 18th and tickets are now on sale!!! (Link on bio)
All our gratitude for our partner @brasilsummerfest for trusting our vision and adding so much to it and @houseofyesnyc and all its team for opening the doors of this incredible venue to us. This party was what it was because of the labor and talent of a lot of people!
