The Handphibians Present CARNAVAL 2014

The Handphibians present TWO NIGHTS of music and dance as Madison’s own community percussion bateria celebrates Carnaval 2014. It is time to usher in the dawn of Spring with the passion and spirit of Brazil’s beloved annual celebration. The Handphibians joined by Ótimo Madison Brazilian Dance will heat up the city with 3 different styles of the most exciting Brazilian rhythms: Rio Style Samba, Samba Reggae/Axe of Salvador, and Maracatu from Recife.

Saturday night is at the Majestic Theater where the night will open with a Capoeira demonstration, David Irwin, and a performance by Drum Power, a youth music organization, mentoring youth in the percussive arts. Special guests, Grupo Balança, will move you to the sound of Brazil’s “backyard Samba”, an acoustic take on the infamous Rio sound.

Both nights will feature The Handphibians and Otimo Madison Brazilian Dance.

      Great. I will need to get a ticket at the door, so I'll hang around that area until we find each other.

    Last nights show was slated to start at 8, however music didn't really get going until 9. So, I will plan on being at the doors at 8, I'll watch for people, I will have a black feather boa on... If anyone gets there and would like to find me/us, I'll have my phone and will check frequently until either we find people, or the music starts - looking forward to the second night, last night was amazing!! My phone is[masked]-0889. Text will probably work better due to noise.

    Just joined and RSVPd. Please let me know if plans for tonight change, Dee. I'm being spontaneous, but I don't want to end up alone.
