Bloco AfroBrazil

Bloco AfroBrazil’s goal is to preserve, promote, and spread the Afro-Brazilian culture, in all its aspects: music, dance, religion, and culinary arts. Their primary focus is on music and dance, through different music entities: BatukAxé, a drum and dance ensemble playing samba reggae and other batucada style grooves; Banda Jiló, playing forró music from northeastern Brazil; and Aguida, playing Axé music, the most contemporary style from El Salvador; and Mangalô, a modern interpretation of traditional Brazilian grooves.
