Brazilian folkloric troupe to rock Wilshire Boulevard


After the week I’ve had, I am dearly looking forward to Saturday night’s performance of Balé Folclórico da Bahia, Brazil’s only professional folk dance company. The 38-member ensemble, which features live music and singing (five percussionists and three singers) presents the U.S. premiere of Sacred Heritage, a work inspired by the polytheistic nature religion of Candomble. They will also perform Afixire (Dance of Happiness), the bravura moves of Capoeira and the legendary samba and samba reggae Carnaval rhythms of Brazil.

Bring it on, Brazilians!
