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.
