Celebrate the culture of Brazil with lively stories, Brazilian rhythms and traditional dance! Nós de Chita means "we who wear chita” and refers to the beautiful and colorful fabric used for the clothes, accessories and home décor of the working class people of Brazil. Besides music, this lively ensemble demonstrates various forms of rhythm and movement such as Coco, Cacuria, Maracutu and the skill and agility of Capoeira. Nós de Chita performs on authentic Brazilian percussion instruments and engages students through body percussion and sing-along in Portuguese, the language of the country.
