The daytime event is suitable for all the family and starts at 3pm so make sure you arrive promptly to make the most of the workshops, activities and performances we’ve got going on throughout the afternoon.

Workshops are aimed at adults although some (especially percussion) will be suitable for kids and families too. There will be plenty for kids to do as well though! We’ve got facepainting, maraca and egg-shaker making, football and much more!

Adults can stay with us well into the night-time, where you’ll be spoilt with some of brum’s finest djs and brazilian music connoisseurs.

Entry into the whole event (day and night) is only £8 and includes all workshops and activities. Entry into the night-time party is £5. Kids under 16 get in free! Tickets will be available on the door.

TamoJunto 20-9-14

Brazilian martial arts movement Capoeira Cordão de Ouro Birmingham have found a new home, and they want us all to make the most of it!

This studio under Snow Hill’s historic railway arches is the perfect place to learn, create and socialise, so we just had to throw a party to celebrate.

We’ll be mixing it up in classic Brum Spirit style, so expect an eclectic soundtrack from hip hop and funk to traditional Brazilian rhythms.

Add to that Brazilian food and drink, forró, capoeira and breakdance taster sessions, all for just £5 on the door, and we’re in for an awesome evening.

We’re in this together!

As part of Espirito Brum 2014, and in association with International Dance Festival Birmingham’s Paint the Town Red Series, we’re proud to announce the return of Rebel Spirit.

Brazilian reggae and hip hop star Jota III joins forces with DJ Destruction Turntablist Champion DJ Feva to host this fourth edition of our ongoing celebration of Birmingham’s underground music scene.

Global roots venue PST has a 15 year history springing from the Jamaican blues dance movement.

Where better for breakdance initiative Open Circles to join forces with Northeastern Brazilian social dance enthusiasts Forró in Brum, Nottingham Samba Band featuring pioneering Afro Brazilian choreographer Irineu Nogueira, and Capoeira Cordão de Ouro, for an open floor event where everyone gets a chance to try out new moves.

Join us for a welcoming vibe, home cooked Jamaican food and a roof top after party that’ll take you through to dawn.

Proceeds from ticket sales at this event will go towards supporting social dance movements in Birmingham. Any excuse for a boogie ;).

Rebel Spirit – in association with IDFB.
