PhillyBloco Halloween/ Carnaval Costume Party. PhillyBloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, with their large percussion sections and harmonic/vocal accompaniment. The group is comprised of twelve drummers, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, horn section, accordion, and Brazilian dancers. The group performs a raucous mash-up of SAMBA, FUNK, REGGAE and more made popular by both Brazilian and non-Brazilian artists including: Olodum, Timbalada, Monobloco, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder. The one constant in all of the music is a heavy percussive element (12 drummers!) that they use to explore the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms, applying their own unique creativity and energy to each arrangement. The music is extremely high energy, full of passion and feeling. “We want to make people dance, feel good, and give them something to celebrate every time they see us perform!”
