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 had been brewing in the brain of Stacy Kovacs for a few months.  Batala New York Women Drumming

Starting in January, 2016, Stacy had the desire to expand on the repertoire of her band, Batala New York, possibly including a marching band.  Unfortunately the nature of Batala, Batala New York, and the global project didn’t allow a stray from the required musical arrangements given to her from her Maestro.  With a lot of emotions Stacy walked away from, and dissolved the entity Batala New York City.

New York City’s Drumline, Marching Band, Samba Band, Brazilian Band is taking NYC by storm!  Batala
