Once a year the Auckland Latin Fiesta (Party) is held at Aotea Square in Auckland, New Zealand. In this 4K video, we show you some typical Brazilian Samba dancing (and music) along with Capoeira (a type of “fighting” dance) that were a part of the event.

The performers today were the New Zealand based Brazilian groups Samba Passion, Samba Maracana and Maculele Capoeira.

Use headphones for the best immersive experience while listening to the sounds of the environment. Sorry, no CC (Closed Captions) for this video as the music and dancing speak for themselves.

Auckland Latin Fiesta

Once a year Latin American culture is celebrated at Aotea Square over 3 days and 2 nights.

There are free dance lessons (Salsa, Tango, Bachata, Capoeira, Forro), live music & DJs, cultural displays, an arts and crafts market and my favourite … the food trucks with a variety of authentic food from Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and more.

There are also THREE stages with live music and other performances including one with a DJ so you can dance all day and night if you like.

Aotea Square is the unofficial main square of Auckland, New Zealand. You will find many events held here throughout the year.
