#musicmonday! Hello and good morning! We are kicking off Monday with another great band for this year's 9th Annual Brazilian Day Arizona Festival!! Please help us welcome a Brazilian Bateria that brings the afro-brazilian rhythms and beats of Salvador, Bahia, our good friends "Batala" will be joining us in 2018! Batalá Los Angeles is part of the larger internationally recognized Samba Reggae family created in 1997 by Giba Gonçalves. Batala Los Angeles was founded in 2013 by Musical Director, Mario Pallais, who has taken his group around the world to play the Afro-Brazilian sounds in Cuba, South America, USA and more!
Batala—an international samba reggae performance group—was founded in Paris in 1997 by Giba Goncalves, a Bahian percussionist (Ilê Aiyê, Olodum, Muzenza, Male Debale, Jimmy Cliff, Tupi Nago, and Kaoma). One of the founders of the Afro Bloco Cortejo Afro, an arts education project to help underserved young people living in poor communities, Goncalves moved to Paris in 1997 and founded Batalá as the European wing of the project. Today, Batala Paris is the oldest of all the international Batala contingents.
