Save the Dates!
Start your holiday season with a bang – or even better – with the high-energy sounds of Batucaxé! You have three (that's three!) opportunities, so mark the dates on your calendar and don't miss out:
On Saturday, Nov. 29, the Batucaxé Performance Group will be at The Hut for another Brazilian-inspired party. We love The Hut - lots of room to dance, sing along, and have the best time. And we'd really love to see you there. Bring a friend! This is a 21 and over show. $5 at the door (305 N. 4th Avenue). The party starts at 9:30 p.m. and goes until midnight.
On Tuesday, Dec. 9, the Batucaxé Community Group will join several other percussion groups for World Percussion Night at the UA Music Building's Crowder Hall. Join us from 7:30 to 9 p.m. for a free evening of high energy and amazing sound. Don't miss the grand finale of 100+ percussionists joining forces for an experience that will have you out of your seat and maybe on the stage as well! For click here for more information.
Last but not least, you are cordially invited to the second Rhythm Industry Review Showcase on Saturday, Dec. 13, from 7 to 10 p.m. Mi casa es su casa! We open our space for you to enjoy a night of sights and sounds from the many groups that rehearse, practice, and create in our home at 1013 S. Tyndall Avenue. Some of the groups you'll see include the amazing performance and fire artists Flam Chen, the mystical Odaiko Sonora Taiko Drummers; and yes, Batucaxé! The show is free, but a donation is suggested – all funds go to help us keep our house in order. Bring a lawn chair and prepare to be enlivened!
Batucaxé is a nonprofit drum and dance ensemble and school in Tucson, Arizona. Inspired by the music of Brazil, Batucaxé (pronounced bah-too-cah-SHAY) features the music of many traditions, from Brazil and all over the world. Our goal is to inspire creativity, openness, community solidarity and collective joy, through lessons and classes, outreach programs and high-energy performances. www.batucaxe.org
