Ibrahim Theater - Standing (Dancing!) Room Only

BRAZILIAN MUSIC TO SHAKE YOUR BODY AND SOUL!

PhillyBloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, with their large percussion sections and harmonic/vocal accompaniment. Their group is comprised of twelve drummers, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, horn section, accordion, and Brazilian dancers, and performs a raucous mash-up of SAMBA, FUNK, REGGAE made popular by both Brazilian and non-Brazilian artists including: Olodum, Timbalada, Monobloco, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder. The one constant in all of their music is a heavy percussive element (12 drummers!) that is used to explore the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms, but with creative and energetic arrangements that are uniquely their own!
