Dendê Macêdo by SWE Photography
Afro-Brazilian percussionist Dendê Macêdo and his band are joined by Ologundê—a music, dance, and martial arts ensemble—for a riveting celebration of Afro-Brazilian culture. The evening includes capoeira, Candomblé, and samba de roda, developed by African slaves on the sugar plantations in Brazil as a way to keep alive their traditions and cultures. Dendê’s exuberant brand of high-octane music has been praised for its “polyrhythmic power and joyous melodies” (Boston Herald), while Ologundê’s ritual dances and martial arts draw “gasps from the audience” (Dayton Daily News).
