For five years, elrow – the Spanish events company whose events The New York Times called “a traveling celebration that’s part Cirque du Soleil, part Alice in Wonderland” — brought his circus-inspired electronic dance extravaganzas to Avant Gardner in East Williamsburg.
This Saturday, April 9, they return to the scene with “Sambowdromo Do Brasil”.
For the first time, the event continues into the day on Sunday, April 10, taking full advantage of Avant Gardner’s indoor/outdoor setting – which includes the Brooklyn Mirage, Great Hall and Kings Hall – and the first signs of the times. spring in the city.
More than a techno-house rave, “Sambowdromo Do Brasil” will be a complete afro-tech-house sound experience, steeped in traditional Brazilian sounds – think samba, bossa nova, tropicalia. It will also be a feast for the eyes, with drummers, dancers, otherworldly creatures and hallucinogenic landscapes worthy of a jungle street party.
Not to mention the spectacle of the clubbers themselves who, as always, will dress to the full. Feathers are strongly encouraged.

“I’m happy to say that I think Brooklyn Mirage and Avant Gardner are going to be talked about as these places for years to come. It’s about building a community for the next generation of ravers – which I think I’m going to do. perfectly. As a DJ playing there, it’s something very special. It’s a bit different than playing in a little underground club in the basement – it’s more like a festival stage but you have always a link with the crowd.
Clarke is so attached to the room that he named his next single after him: “Mirage” will be released on Factory93 in May.
