A contemporary percussionist and educator, Marcus Santos is a native of Bahia, Brazil. He commits his life to the study, teaching and performance of his hometown’s Afro-Brazilian music and heritage. He’s currently the director of the Grooversity network project and artistically directs twenty two drumming groups in the US, Canada, France and Italy.

The Brooklyn United Marching Band is a community-based organization that serves New York City youth. The southern collegiate-style band, with its flair for unique and electrifying presentations, has grown to become one of the country’s most prestigious marching bands.

From kolos to Kusturica, Zlatne Uste has played with Saban Bajramovic, Esma Redzepova and many other legendary Roma musicians from Eastern Europe. The foremost presenters of traditional Balkan dance music in the US, Zlatne Uste’s repertoire spans the most important stops in the traditional music of the Balkans — Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Gypsy traditions. Five-time invited guest at the Dragachevo Brass Festival in Gucha, Serbia, the 12-piece band is internationally known.

This event is made possible by public funds from the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, both administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

The workshop is part of the Carnival Project, Batala NYC’s multi-year exploration of the theme of Carnival as it is variously interpreted throughout the world. Stay tuned for information about the Carnival Project’s Femme Finale, our celebration of women artists in May 2016! band style of playing alive and well and contributing new music and sharing it with the universe!
