At Your Beat: Back to School Workout + Party | 1:15pm
Batalá NY | 2:15pm
Batalá New York is an all-women percussion ensemble playing Afro-Brazilian music, primarily Samba Reggae — a genre originating in the state of Bahia in northeast Brazil. During Carnaval every year, Samba Reggae is performed in the streets of Salvador, the capital of Bahia, with hundreds of drummers moving together. In homage to that tradition, Batalá New York’s performances are percussive, energetic and highly dynamic, with colorful costumes and lively choreography.
