:: VISION ::
Grupo Liberdade @ Magellan Youth Fest
Grupo Liberdade is a performance group dedicated to freedom of expression through Culture, Movement & Sound. We promote COMMUNITY, DIVERSITY & EMPOWERMENT drawing upon the traditional & contemporary rhythms of Brazil and beyond while bringing an original sound & energy to our desert metropolis. Specializing in Batucada including the Afro-Brazilian styles of Samba, Samba Reggae, Côcos and Maracatu, Grupo Liberdade strives to share the infectious sounds of Brasil with Arizona to further enrich, move & inspire.
Since 2004, the group has performed throughout Arizona under the direction of Brazilian native, Poranguí from leading the Annual Phoenix Parade of the Arts through downtown Phoenix to drumming & dancing in the new year for thousands of party-goers at the historical Hotel Congress in Tucson. Dedicated to creating music to move the body & soul, this project brings together diversity on all levels with an incredible show of talented musicians & dancers that must not be watched, but experienced!
Grupo Liberdade has partnered with Capoeira Brasil Arizona and the SambAZ dancers to create an incredible world-class performance troupe of dancers & musicians. Together the troupe has established an annual tradition of two epic events bringing together the very best in Brasilian culture through Brasil Fest AZ and Carnaval AZ at world class venues like the Musical Instrument Museum involving over 50 performers including Capoeira, Samba Dancers, Sambistas, Folkloric dancers and so much more.
