Our Performers:

NC Brazilian Arts Project or NCBAP is an organization dedicated to promoting diverse Brazilian cultural arts throughout the community, and provide outstanding entertainment, private, and class instruction in various Brazilian movement arts, such as dance, capoeira and drumming.

Batalá is an international samba reggae music project based in Salvador de Bahia in northeastern Brazil. The name Batalá is a combination of the phrase “bateu lá” meaning “hit there” in Portuguese and Obatalá (Oxalá), the Candomblé deity who is the father of the Orixas and of all humanity.

Batalá Durham is the newest branch of the Batalá family in North America. They are still currently recruiting new members also rehearsing and learning the music of Batala and samba reggae and playing shows, festivals, and events of all kinds. The group is based in Durham where they also hold their rehearsal. If you would like to join the group feel free to contact them through the website

Caique Vidal and Batuque is a unique band that brings infectious energy, riveting dance grooves, and provides an insight to Afro-Brazilian culture which is greatly needed in the music world of today. “Batuque” (pronounced ba-TOO-kee) means to drum and the band delivers an explosive performance that integrates the sounds of percussion with a modern style in entertaining way that engages and rocks the entire audience!
Caique Vidal and Batuque presents the vibrations of African music in the Americas performing the rhythms of samba, reggae, salsa, bachata, pop, rock and Bossa Nova. Batuque provides a show where the audience will enjoy both original songs and hits of the popular Brazilian music.
