FIERY SAMBA

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - WORDS//

Known for giv­ing guests the thrill of the grill, Bush­fire Flame Grill Restau­rant has taken it to the next level by de­liv­er­ing the thrill of Brazil ev­ery Fri­day in Fe­bru­ary for Car­ni­val at Bush­fire, where the colour­ful cul­ture of this cap­ti­vat­ing coun­try is ev­i­dent.

The venue was packed with guests as bronzed (and in­cred­i­bly toned) samba dancers Ari­anna Proia and Juria Honda sashayed be­tween ta­bles to the strum of a gui­tar, dou­ble bass and conga.

“You be­come ad­dicted to samba, the mu­sic the danc­ing and of course the out­fits, which we get shipped from Brazil,” dancer Ari­anna Proia said. “They are more ex­pen­sive but they are much bet­ter qual­ity and it is pretty cool to say we are wear­ing au­then­tic Brazil­ian samba out­fits.”

Pa­cific Ho­tel gen­eral man­ager Gre­gor Davie said he es­pe­cially loved the “ex­pres­sive in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the guests and the live Latino mu­si­cians”.

“The whole team are ex­cited to see this event brought to life, we are all very pas­sion­ate about the food, dance, mu­sic and cul­ture of Brazil,” he said.

Jack­son Woodrow summed it up: “Good food and sexy girls… What more could you want?”
