Brighton Common, 30 Chestnut Hill Ave., Brighton

Sing and dance outdoors at a wide range of family-friendly performances held during the Brighton Farmer's Market!

All events are free, weather permitting, and open to the public.

August 11: Marcus Santos and Grooversity
Grooversity is an innovative drumming network envisioned and led by Brazilian percussionist Marcus Santos. Grooversity’s goal is to promote Afro-Brazilian percussion as an educational resource, entertainment and as a catalyst for social change.

An ensemble of drummers and dancers will introduce the audience to soul-stirring Afro-Brazilian spirituals, jazz that virtuosic street soloists make with instruments as humble as plastic buckets, thunderous and gleeful drumming of festival marching bands, and the modern sounds of Samba Funk.

* This concert is part of the Harvard Ed Portal's Family Concert Series
