Bruno Moraes, master in Brazilian Rio Samba style percussion and a great friend of many of us in Bloco Alegria, is coming back to Portland and is giving a workshop one night only at our rehearsal on September 22 from 8-10pm! Since this will be a short workshop, Bruno will teach some new band bossas and help to tune up the bateria. All Bloco Alegria members as well as people thinking of joining Bloco Alegria are welcome and encouraged to come. It’s a great opportunity to learn from one of the bateria experts from Rio!
Join the lively occupants of 3705 SE Yamhill Street for their third annual block party.
Live music (cumbia, Jamaican jazz, ska, Brazilian), food, a kid's area and other festivities.
Bloco Alegria will be entertaining the Ducks at the Crystal Ballroom.
Bloco Alegria will play and dance at one of the hottest venues in town. Hydration will be key.
