Brazilian Ball

DiverCITY #6: Cool Drummings Festival & the Brazilian Carnival Ball

What happens when a harpist, a marimba player and a steelpan drummer play an original Michael Colgrass score? Listen for yourself in this podcast's overview of the Cool Drummings Festival. All kinds of percussion got together for some of the weirdest and most beautiful classical mashups. Then we head to the Brazilian Carnival Ball, where papaya shrimp boats, painted bodies on parade and sincere tributes helped raise 22 million dollars for one special night.
