The Story

Modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro like Olodum and Timbalada, PhillyBloco is a 23-piece ensemble comprised of 12 drummers, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, horn section, accordion and Brazilian dancers. The group performs a raucous mash-up of samba, reggae and funk while exploring the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms heard at Carnival.
