The Brewery Arts Center’s Levitt AMP free concert series ends this weekend with Brazilian music band SambaDá.

The outdoor concert Saturday begins at 6:30 p.m. with Spoken Views Youth Collective, young spoken word poets from Reno, followed by the Chad Wilkins Trio at 7.

SambaDá takes the stage at 8 p.m. with its mix of Brazilian, salsa, cumbia, funk and reggae music.

The band was founded in Santa Cruz, Calif., by guitarist and singer Papiba Godinho, saxophonist Anne Stafford and drummer Gary Kehoe.

The seven-piece band also features Dandha Da Hora on vocals and percussion; Etienne Franc, bassist and singer; Will Bates-Minou, percussionist; and percussionist Ibou N’gom.

There will also be food vendors, drink and activities for kids and attendees will be welcome to bring their own picnics, lawn chairs and blankets.

The 10-concert series was funded in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation.

The final concert also serves as part of the kickoff weekend for Jazz & Beyond, the month-long concert festival presented by Mile High Jazz Band Association.

The free concert is at the BAC, 449 W. King St. on its Minnesota Street stage.
