Batalá Durham is back again this year at Habitat for Humanity’s Bull Moon Ride & Run at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Help support Habitat for Humanity by joining the race (on foot or on bike) or come support the participants and stay for the show! Batalá Durham will perform before the event (around 7:00 pm) and then help drum the participants off the starting line at 7:30pm and 7:45pm. We’ll then welcome the finishers with an after-race performance around 8:30 pm. More details on the event on the Bull Moon website.
Batalá Durham and special guests from Batalá Philadelphia will be teaming up to bring the heat at the Durham Bulls’ Latino Heritage Weekend game on Saturday, July 27th! We’ll be performing outside the Durham Bulls Athletic Park prior to the 6:35 pm game, then performing on field in between innings during the game.
For his second tour in the U.S., lead singer Neguinho da Beija-Flor brings Rio’s 2018 champion samba school spirit from Brazil. Neguinho is considered one of the most iconic Carnival performers of Brazil. Since 1976, he has been affiliated with the winning parade, Beija-Flor de Nilópoles, one of the largest samba schools from Rio de Janeiro. Neguinho da Beija-Flor is sure to bring the true Carnival spirit to American audiences of all ages. Batalá Durham is honored to open the show.
