Sambatuque is a Brazilian-inspired community percussion troupe in Flagstaff, Arizona. We celebrate the traditional rhythms of Brazil, Africa, and Cuba, as well as the original music of master drummer Marcus Santos. Our concerts break the wall between musicians and audience – everybody can play music and dance! We welcome people to join us.
Sambatuque practices every Wednesday evening and everyone is welcome.
Between October and April, rehearsals are held at the new Center for Indigenous Music and Culture, 213 S. San Francisco St., from 6:45 – 8:30.
Between May and September, rehearsals are held at Buffalo Park from 6:00 – 8:00.
