with special guest Batalá
We are thrilled to announced that our special guest will be Batalá, an all-women percussion band whose mission is to empower women through drumming and expose communities to Brazil’s dynamic music and culture. The group is a diverse community of women hailing from countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa. There are currently over 75 women in the DC group!
Batalá ‘s Washington, DC band is part of an international Batalá family formed in Paris in 1997 by Giba Goncalves. Batalá began as the European wing of Cortejo Afro, an arts education project to help disadvantaged young people. The instruments and clothing are all manufactured in Salvador, Bahia, where the band has a social program that provides jobs for many poor families. From Paris, Batalá spread to other cities in France, Belgium, Spain, Africa, the United Kingdom, and back to its origins in Brazil. In 2007, Batalá came to Washington, DC, extending the reach of this infectious music for the first time to the United States. Today, there are six bands in the US, joining a total of over 30 Batalá bands worldwide. As part of our mission, Batalá Washington also operates a community outreach project to teach underserved youth throughout the DC Metro Area samba-reggae rhythms and dance.
