Workshop

Let's Swing with the Axe' Rhythm of Salvador Bahia!

Saturday

6:30PM

Park Stage

Join the amazing Dora Oliveira for this fun and high-energy dance workshop exploring the axe' and rhythm of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil! While "axe'" has more than one meaning in Portuguese and is often used as a positive expression or greeting in conversation (think "good vibes"), it's also a popular music genre that originated in Salvador, Bahia in the 1980s, fusing different Afro-Caribbean genres, such as marcha, reggae, and calypso. You don't want to miss this workshop!
