Maracatu Mar Aberto is a Toronto based percussion and song troupe playing Maracatu de Baque Virado and other rhythms derived from the traditions of Northeastern Brazil. Translated to English as ‘the Open Sea’, the name represents the aggregated influences that have traveled from Africa to Brazil and onward to Toronto and beyond. Featuring Flavia Nascimento on lead vocals, this dynamic ensemble combines the traditional with the original for a raw and dynamic performance.
Performance date: Thursday July 5 – 8:00pm
Location: Trillium Park
