TIME: 15:00 – 16:00 GMT

Juba do Leão (Manchester) and Afon Sistema (Bristol) invite you to join our groups for a Q&A with Maracatu Nação Almirante do Forte. Founded in 1931, Almirante are one of the most established Maracatus in Recife, Brazil. Both of our groups have enjoyed many years of visits to the project in Brazil since 2004, and have built strong friendships and band connections ever since.

This Q&A invites you to bring along your own questions about the Maracatu culture, their Nação group, and anything else you may be curious about. The session will feature translations in Brazilian Portuguese and English.

Sign up using the form below, donate, and we’ll send you the zoom link on the morning of the Q&A day.

Price*: donations of £3-£10 based on your circumstances (click register and follow the instructions or check your email)
