Samba So Sweet

May 23, 2009

I don’t know about you but I can always tell how phenomenal a party was by how sore my feet were from dancing: especially if I’m wearing low heels or flats. My feet were  on fire last night when I checked out Samba Squad’s 10th Anniversary Concert at The Phoenix Concert Theatre. Sean and two of our friends performed so of course I had to come out to support the event. If you don’t know about the Samba Squad, shame on you! 🙂 They’re the legendary Toronto-based percussion group.  The Samba Squad blends the music of Afro-Brazil, Afro-Cuba, North and West Africa, as well as elements of urban funk and hip-hop to electrify audiences!

Proceeds from last night’s event went to the Samba Kidz Program. You can check out Samba Squad’s  website here for more information.  I was having too much fun so I didn’t take that many photographs but I did manage to capture two incredibly talented artists – producer, emcee, beat boxer, & actor a.k.a. SUBLIMINAL and Toronto dance choreographer Shawn Byfield – BRING DOWN THE HOUSE with their performance!!! Have a look at the photos below to see what you missed.

    Thanks for the support NavyJade. And thanks for posting the video footage of our set- I don’t get to see our performances from the audience perspective often… this got me excited! The musicality, the concepts, the ENERGY… Samba Squad in the house!
