Fresh back from Lisbon, scene of WOMEX 2022, Brazilian percussion maestro Dende has a new video out today.
"Feira de São Joaquim" celebrates the famed open air market in Salvador, Bahia where locals shop for everything from fruits and vegetables to livestock and supplies for the practice of candomblé. The video takes you into the visual spectacle and energy of a Salvador market, with the rich flavor of accordion-driven forro in the sound.
Afropop interviewed Dende in Lisbon about his remarkable career. Stay tuned for that.
