We waited 2 years for this – and it was well worth the wait!
This is going to be something of an ever-expanding page as we gather up the tons of photos and videos out there, and put them together in some kind of order.
Mass Samba Carnival Bloco
Every year we get together with our sister samba schools from around the country who come down to perform at CubaDupa, and we play a Mass Samba Carnival Bloco together. Over 200 drummers and dancers, doing their thing. Love it.
This footage includes our one and only rehearsal together in the morning, together with the gig later that day.
This year we did a parade down Cuba Street to our stage show, and a parade from our stage show to the Samba HQ at Whistling Sisters – and then for good measure, a mini-parade from Samba HQ all the way back up Cuba Street again. Awesome!
The full video of our 30-minute stage performance on Sunday afternoon.
This gig felt amazing to be a part of – and the mixing desk guy was a complete genius, managing to capture voices and drums with the same mikes – impressive.
We LOVED doing this show – we think it’s one of our best CubaDupa performances ever – and when the sun broke through the clouds and shone down on us all – we got chills. Enjoy!
There are many more photos to come, but let’s kick off with a photo montage taken by two of our own – Dani Fuenzalida and Nigel Sloley. The soundtrack is from our Mass Samba performance.
