My first samba concert

26 Jul

I attended my first samba concert two weeks ago. Mariene de Castro, a Baiana, lit up the stage and brought the crowd to life. The drums, guitars, and numerous instruments (still unknown to me) danced to a rhythm you’d rarely hear in the states. If I knew how to dance, I surely would have. Instead, I sat at a backstage table watching the feet and hips of the crowd move like nothing I’ve seen before. It’s like Brazilians came out of the womb samba dancing. I’m totally jealous that I was never taught to move my body this way. The free samba classes at school are becoming much more enticing…
