A Nossa Bateria

Every year for Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, competing bands of the samba schools compose and perform their own “enredo”(en-HAY-doo). It’s a song form that communicates, along with thunderous drums and colorful musical lines, the stories, histories, and social commentary relevant to the area.

This year, the Handphibians have composed their FIRST EVER enredo, celebrating 20 years of drumming and community vibrancy in Madison, our little haven in América do Norte. Enjoy!
