This dynamic duo introduces a new approach to world rhythms, combining the sounds of Hip-Hop, Brazilian Samba, and Cuban Makuta. Their energetic show blends drumming with life experiences to explore “the language of ethnic hand percussion.” The group also invites “aNova Brazil,” a 12-piece afrobrazilian drumming group, to join in the concert, as well as audience members, to create a powerful and collaborative experience for everyone.
