Black Creek Nights is back with a Brazilian twist. Batuke Samba Funk is a high energy Brazilian band that mixes rhythms such as Funk from the 1970s with Afro Samba, Brazilian Big Band, Batucada, Soul, and R&B. The band attracts a mixed crowd with people from all ages and nationalities dancing in every performance. The goal of Batuke is to “Brazilianize” American sounds and “Americanize” Brazilian sounds in a perfect balanced fusion.
Black Creek Night’s is a once-a-month event that happens under the stars in the center’s indoor/outdoor venue, showcasing the best local and touring musicians, deejays and performance artists. The next Black Creek Nights is slated for Friday, Mar. 13.
