An evening celebrating the music, dance and culture of the North East of Brazil.
Selva is ever changing like nature’s forces and inspired by the need to raise awareness of latin culture and environmental issues we operate like a magnetic vortex.
We are recruiting people to be involved or come in our special editions of Selva!
Immerse yourself in an interactive world, where folkloric characters dance and play music in the true spirit of north eastern brazilian carnival!
Performance with Boi Bumba-Meu-Boi is a folk
theatrical tradition where the tale is told through costume, drumming
and performance involving a bull which dies and is brought back to life.
With live music from FORRO SINCOPADO, LET DRUM BEAT, with LAB and Movimientos DJs, interactive performance, visuals, costumes and much more.
We are holding a training event on the 9th May at the Rich Mix London
LET DRUM BEAT
Let Drum Beat is all about female musicians that have gathered their vast set of percussion, joining their afro-latin-brazilian heritage to create their own pieces flavoured by a wide diversity of acoustic sounds that goes from tiny bells to heavy drums, energetic and paced rhythms, passing through vocal melodies, bass lines and spontaneous dance.
£7 advance / £10 door
NB. First 70 advance tickets include mask hire.
I hope you can make it for this initial training session.
All the best,
Cacique Salve Mata
Selva special operational squad
