Grooversity is an innovative drumming network envisioned and led by Brazilian percussionist Marcus Santos. Grooversity’s goal is to promote Afro-Brazilian percussion as an educational resource, entertainment and as a catalyst for social change.
An ensemble of drummers and dancers will introduce the audience to soul-stirring Afro-Brazilian spirituals, jazz that virtuosic street soloists make with instruments as humble as plastic buckets, thunderous and gleeful drumming of festival marching bands, and the modern sounds of Samba Funk.
