Celebrate Carnaval with Samba Drums
on Radio Tropicale
Wednesday, January 30, 2008, Noon-2Pm
Please join Bruce on Radio Tropicale this Wednesday, January 30th at noon for
some live samba drumming from the Brazilian Carnaval tradition.
This samba drumming group is led by Charlottesville musicians Umberto Sales and
Eric Gertner, and will be performing in Richmond later this week at the
Capital Ale House
Samba drumming is a central part of the Carnaval experience in Brazil as samba
parades frequently occur up to the last day before Lent, known in the US as Fat
Tuesday, or Mardi Gras.
So tune in this Wednesday at noon for some great drumming, and catch the group
where they have recorded two
tracks of this great drumming tradition.
