Wellington gets a Brazilian for Xmas!

Santa is coming early, bringing the most explosive Xmas party! The heart of Rio De Janeiro is right here in Wellington this Christmas with Wellington Batucada.

This powerhouse ensemble creates breathtakingly complex walls of sound. The throbbing heartbeat of the surdo drum underpins rattling snares, layers of hand-held percussion instruments such as agogôs bells, ganzás shakers, tambourims, and the panting, surreal shrieks and moans of the cuíca friction drum.

Joining the carnival will be The Crazy Fat Brazilian: Elaine Abras sings and plays guitar beside Darryn Sigley on drums, Carlos Navarrete on percussion and Paul Moncey on bass.

So join us for a sweaty dance hall samba party! Show starts at 8pm.
