We have just launched a kickstarter campaign to raise funds for an upcoming project called "A Tale of Two Nations", which will bring Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante, one of the oldest and most respected traditional maracatu groups in Brazil, to tour the United States with Nation Beat. A Tale of Two Nations is a historic US tour featuring Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante from Recife, Brazil and Nation Beat from Brooklyn, NY. This is the 1st time a traditional maracatu group from Recife has performed in the US! We've already raised almost 10% in less than 1 week. Our goal is to make it to 30% by this weekend. We know we can do that! Let's keep the momentum going. Please share this link and help us spread the word!
