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

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.
