Carnavale Comes to Freire

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 was a special day at POP at Freire Charter Middle School when POP percussion teaching artist Brad Broomfield, and former POP teaching artist Gabe Globus-Hoenich brought their friends, The Baianos (of Bahia, Brazil), for a workshop on Brazilian Carnaval music.   Rodrigo Lima, Priscila Santana and Everton Isidoro were in the U.S. on tour with the Youth Orchestra of Bahia and agreed to spend some extra days in the United States with Gabe and Brad to expose American kids to their music.  The students got to try out different Brazilian percussian instruments and also dance.  It was a great day for all.
