Hey! Let’s catch up with some current events!
Over halloween some members of Bloco Maximo and EEDS headed to NYC to play with Samba New York! for their Halloween Parade. It was a blast! Here are some pictures and videos.
- Yesterday was another great rehearsal at Quilombo Cultural Center. Almost too much fun! (More on that later).
