Samba New York! Carnaval Samba Party

The Event:
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 2016 celebrates Carnaval in style, featuring a samba lesson with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima; live batucada by Samba New York!; the groovy Brazilian beats of DJ Anderson Trindade; and a special performance by Samba Guitar Duo. Only $10 for so much samba fun!
