Astor Alive – Sept 17, 2016

Batala New York City now Fogo Azul NYC

Fogo Azul NYC in our FIRST show!

Batala New York City now FogoAzul NYC is NY’s premiere Marching Band, Samba Band, and Drumline all in one package.

Add some choreography and you’ve got the BEST BAND in New York!

We’re so honored to have shared the stage with so many great artists on Saturday, September 17th, 2016.  We were the back end of the procession and were joined by the Blue Man group and their giant drum!  Check out our social media pages to see more photos of us.  Scroll back for pictures of the transition!  This was such a momentous and personal occasion for so many of us!

We are REALLY excited!   Fired up!

Drumming for Women.

We are happy to be involved in New York City’s women’s communities.  We take all women to learn to play the drums, no matter their skill level.  We only ask that you come to rehearsals and shows, and then you will learn to be a drummer with us!

Location: Astor Place, NYC

Batala New York City now FogoAzul NYC Women Drumline

As the saying goes, when a band splits, good things happen!  Now New York City has an All Women Marching band that can play at your festivals, events, gala’s, parties, parades, anything you could possibly imagine a band like us at!  We came a long way and are so proud to now be out in the streets of New York City!
