Description

As opposed to a show, the “Samba Party” is more of a communal gathering, where Brazilian music enthusiasts share their love of samba drumming, dance, and culture — a kind of NYC take on the mega samba school rehearsals that precede Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro.
The first Samba Party of 2018 celebrates Carnaval in style, featuring a samba lesson with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima; live powerhouse batucada by the Samba New York! Drum Section under the direction of Dr. Samba; and the festive Brazilian beats of DJ Anderson Trindade.

Only $15 for so much samba fun!
