Batucaxé is a non-profit drum and dance ensemble and school founded in Tucson, Arizona in the summer of 2000. Inspired by the music of Brazil, we also feature the music of many traditions from 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.
Batucaxé (pronounced bah-too-cah-SHEH) means "the blessing of the beat" in Portuguese.
