Bloco Tô Ligado Party: November

This year I have been providing brass and percussion instrumental music lessons to children from Rio de Janeiro’s favelas in partnership of a local social project called Projeto Tô Ligado. The aim is to put together a “bloco” (street band) with the children to participate in Rio Carnival in March 2014. Every month we throw a party, to give the children a chance to play in public and to provide a point of contact with their families and the wider community. Here’s a video of the children’s bloco playing at November’s party:

And here are the photos:
