The Brazilian community in Miami is one of Miami’s fastest-growing and biggest immigrant communities, but it is also a recent presence in the city with little connection to the rest of Miami’s ethnic groups.

The International Noise Conference returns to Churchill's Pub in Miami tonight, lasting through this Saturday, and this year's edition is a special one. It's the conference's 10th anniversary, and it's also, as we pointed out earlier this week, the first one boosted by a Knight Arts Challenge grant. That nod of institutional legitimacy gives weight to the fact that, even though the proceedings at the event can get loud, it's not all just a bunch of noise.
