Afoxé

‘Afoxé Manchester’ is about sharing deep-rooted Afro-Brazilian heritage with a community in a modern setting in an attempt to encourage the meeting of minds, and to inspire and invigorate musical and creative experience. Through a short course workshop programme, the Global Grooves team will provide high quality yet affordable tuition in the music and dance disciplines of the Brazilian Afoxé parade whilst paying homage to its Candomblé roots. In sharing the artistic performance of this art form, the participants not only improved their creative skills, but acted as story-tellers passing on the centuries-old tradition to a local community that otherwise may not have ever experienced the phenomenon. This colourful, vibrant carnival-style drumming, dancing, and singing bloco will saturate the streets of Manchester with its effervescent energy spreading hope and light to all who choose to follow!
