Thank you for making our Indiegogo a success!
Samba Fogo recently held an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to go toward our educational outreach programming this fall.
With a lot of help from you – our wonderful network of supporters – we were able to raise $2,165!
With this sum, Samba Fogo will be able to expand the reach of guest classes and arts residencies hosted at local elementary, junior high, and high schools, as well as after-school programs.
Additionally, we hope to reach students and schools who would otherwise not be able to engage in our programming due to budgetary limitations.
Samba Fogo, through these residencies and classes, engages students in Brazilian drumming, dance, song, storytelling, and craft-making – students learn in rhythm together while expanding their cultural understanding.
“For the young, playing music together is a way of deeply interacting with one another, evoking a devotion to excellence, the discipline of working together and the interdependence between sections, voices and instruments.” -José Antonio Abreu, Founder of El Sistema
We want to say thank you for your support and backing of our vision – we couldn’t have achieved this without the help of many.
We’ll keep you posted on the residencies and classes we hold – stay tuned!
