Batuke Samba Funk Feb 28 Collins Park
(Published: February 19, 2016)

Global Arts Project, Inc., presents the second installment of the FREE Artscape Concert Series in Collins Park, celebrating Brazilian Carnival with Batuke Samba Funk.

Batuke is a high energy Brazilian band that mixes rhythms such as Funk from the 70's with Afro Samba, Brazilian Big Band, Batucada, Soul, and R&B. The band attracts a mixed crowd with people from all ages and nationalities dancing in every performance. The goal of Batuke is to "brazilianize" American sounds and "americanize" Brazilian sounds in a perfect balanced fusion. Samba dancers will be featured with the band.

"Imagine Stomp! crossed with an out-of-control drum circle. Batuke Samba Funk is anchored in Miami by its core musicians and their expert displays of percussion, incorporating the traditional sounds of samba with jazz and funk via an ad hoc cache of found percussion instruments...."
Abel Folgar, Miami New Times (2011)

As part of Global Arts Project's educational outreach program, the Miami Beach High School Jazz Ensemble will open the afternoon. There will also be a farmers' market hosted by The Market Company.

Presenting Sponsor for this concert is 1 South Beach Hotel and Homes.

Showtime is 2-5 PM. Collins Park is at 2100 Collins Ave (behind the Bass Museum) in Miami Beach. For more info visit globalartsproject.org or call (305) 332-2623
