NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2019
Baque de Axé is proud to announce we will be performing as part of the Tambores Livres Parade presentation!
TAMBORES LIVRES is unprecedented collaboration between different Brazilian musical, cultural groups, which are coming together to the sound of a Berimbau Orchestra, four maracatu and samba reggae bands, dancers, placards/banners and very special guests.
Tambores livres is a loud response to the rise of the far right in Brazil, where anti-democratic attitudes are growing; activists, politicians, community and cultural leaders are being assassinated; political figures are being falsely imprisoned ; and the deforestation of the Amazonian rain forest is accelerating on an unforeseen scale.
This year we are inviting YOU to come and be part of it!
The parade this year will be open to everyone has a unique chance to be part of the Tambores lIvres Carnival Parade! All you need to do is go to the website www.tamboreslivres.co.uk and buy a t shirt as your entry! Please JOIN US at Notting Hill Carnival in a vibrant Brazilian style parade for democracy and human rights.
