Women Drummers Fogo Azul NYC - New York City’s Drumline, Marching Band, Samba Band, Brazilian Band. A medley of it all!

New York City’s Drumline, Marching Band, Samba Band, Brazilian Band. A medley of it all!

Fogo Azul NYC is the byproduct of Batala New York .  In June of 2016, Batala New York closed its doors after a 5 year run.  The band had a schism and from those ashes emerged Fogo Azul NYC and the original founder and musical direcotr of Batala New York, Stacy Kovacs.   As of 2019, Fogo Azul NYC has expanded to become New York City's most powerful women and gender non-conforming community musical group.  

We are Fogo Azul!
