Balé Folclórico da Bahia

Sat., Mar. 11, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Direct from Bahia in northern Brazil—a place where otherwise long forgotten gods are still remembered—comes this irresistible troupe famous for its explosive drumming, feverish dancing and uncontainable energy. Its display of Bahian folkloric dances of African origin was described as a “non-stop extravaganza” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Balé Folclórico da Bahia brings thrilling choreography, joyous rhythms, and a feisty, flirtatious exuberance to every performance.
