In February, we learned we were one of five finalists for the 2015 Brazilian International Press Awards in the category of Cultural Institution, which was selected by popular vote. After the finalists were picked, judges then selected the winners in each category. We have just been informed that we have been selected as the winner of best Cultural Institution by the Brazilian Press, from a pool of nominees all across the US! We are truly honored! We are excited that EEDS is being recognized for its efforts, and we hope to continue promoting Brazilian culture and music in years to come. The award will be presented on May 9 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Help us celebrate our win at our big Carnaval event on Saturday, March 28th at SRBCC!
