“From Naples, Italy to Bravura Entertainment”

Bravura Entertainment is proud to introduce our newest bi-lingual vocalist, pianist, and wedding host, PAOLO!

A notable musician from Italy, Paolo had the extreme honor of performing in the presence of former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton. He has entertained for celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Barbara Walters, Tony Danza, and Clint Eastwood. Bravura is delighted to be working with such a multi-talented, Italian crossover artist who specializes in the songs from Italy as well as the timeless classics of the Great American Songbook. We welcome Paolo to the Bravura family and look forward to introducing him to the Long Island wedding scene and the BRAVURA BRIDE.

Ethnic Wedding Traditions

Ethnic Wedding Traditions

Bravura Entertainment is known for their world music library and their ability to entertain in a multilingual fashion, but what really separates us from others is our extensive knowledge of ethnic wedding traditions. We love when a Bravura bride is having a traditional American wedding reception while celebrating their natural heritage by rediscovering age-old cultural traditions. With having the familiarity and knowledge of these ancient worldwide traditions, the Bravura entertainment team will assist you with introducing your culture to your family and friends.

At our Chinese culture receptions, it is customary for the bride to wear a dress that is a vibrant red and that is embroidered with silver and gold thread. The color red is thought to bring good luck, so cloaking a bride in vestments of red is considered lucky.

During our African American
weddings, one of the most popular cultural trends is jumping the broom, which is a symbolic way to “jump” into marriage with both feet.

Of course, Bravura Greek weddings are notoriously boisterous and fun. The “Circle Dance” and “Money Dance” both originate with the Greek culture.

At the very beginning of our Russian receptions, before the Bride and Groom share their first dance together, Bread and Salt are offered to the newlyweds by both parents as a symbol of health, prosperity and long life.

Our Jewish receptions are joyous celebrations with many traditional dances. A energetic, circle dance called the Hora is performed. The bride and groom will hold on to either end of a handkerchief and are lifted into the air on chairs.  They are celebrated as the king and queen of the night.

One of the most recognized songs and traditional dances at Bravura Italian receptions is the Tarantella. A festive circle dance where all guests are encouraged to join in and celebrate with the newlyweds.

All ethnic wedding traditions are a joy to share with your loved ones. At Bravura, is our pleasure to be a part of this special occasion and celebrate with the most important people in your life!
