Bloco Tô Ligado: Pre-Carnival Ball

For the last year, I've been working with Brazilian percussionist Manguerinha and social project Projeto Tô Ligado to create a carnival bloco (street band) with children from favelas in the Santa Teresa district - funding the activities with the proceeds of a monthly Indian food and music event called the Curry Clube. We threw a pre-carnival ball at the project this Sunday to provide an opportunity for the children to play in public. The children played all of the classic carnival marches and it ended up being a great party. Big thanks to everyone who came along and helped out!
