Brazilian Dance Party with Santa Cruz’s very own SambaDa and special guests the Samba Da Terra dance troupe are at Harlow’s, 2708 J St. in Sacramento, on Friday, June 28 at 9:30 p.m.
The performance brings an Afro-Brazilian Orixa spirit of the ocean, the master capoeristas practicing Brazil’s martial art dance form, and the joy of surfers-cum-dancers rocking out to hybrid musical sounds — Afro-Brazilian percussion music, samba-reggae, surf-rock and California funk.
This smoldering and soldering band is a magnet of unexpected particles shaved from Brazilian and American sources. This community of people—their local fanbase and their Brazilian ancestors, their people — are honored in the title of SambaDa’s latest album “Gente!”
There is a $10 cover charge at the door.
