El Barrio Carnaval 2023

It’s Carnaval time!


Our friends at El Barrio do a great job of celebrating Carnaval, and they invited Batucada drummers to take part in their week-long festival of all things samba.

We were delighted to accept, and our dancers came along for a good old boogie as part of the audience.

The show began with a street performance, and finished up in the club itself. A brilliant time was had by all.
