About Batalá Rocky Mountains

Batalá Rocky Mountains is part of the Batalá global arts project founded by Giba Gonçalves in 1997. It is currently made up of over 40 bands around the world. The music of Batalá originates in Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, in northeastern Brazil. Click here to find out more about Batalá Mundo.

The Batalá Rocky Mountains drum ensemble strives to inspire, educate, and enrich, by sharing the magic of Afro-Brazilian samba reggae in Colorado. We visit schools, play in the streets, at festivals, and private events.
