Traditional Brazilian music group Alma Tropicalia will perform Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on the Strathmore Music Hall grounds (5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda, Md.).

Elin, the lead singer, has an energetic performance style and sultry sound that she brought to DC Pride last year. The group blends samba, bossa nova, forró and a little rock and roll in their numbers. Singer/keyboardist Bill Dempsey is gay.

The performance is part of Strathmore’s free summer concert series. Those attending are encouraged to bring blankets and low beach chairs, but no pets. For more details, visit strathmore.org.
