Cabasa designed and created costume for this unique multi discipline arts collective specialising in Brazilian percussion dance and melody.
“Inspired by the floor-shaking rhythms and vibrant dances of North-Eastern Brazil, Juba do Leão take you on an enlightening tour of the intoxicating grooves of Brazil and beyond. Every performance features beats and breaks that offer a dynamic journey of Brazilian coastal grooves for an unsuspecting audience”
This commission involved co-ordinating a team of volunteers and seamstresses in the fabrication of costume for 30+ members of the group. A new colour scheme was introduced to the group, reflecting the regal design of traditional costume with a Cabasa twist. They were first worn as part of the ‘RNCM project’ and have since been used at various events throughout the UK including Glasgow’s West End Festival, Cardiff Welsh Encontro, Manchester Day Parade in 2010 & 2011 and Juba’s album launch.
