Seattle’s samba group, VamoLa, will be drumming and dancing in the streets Tuesday night 7:00-10:00 pm to celebrate Obama’s inauguration.
Here’s what Carl of VamoLa sent to a local online discussion list:
“Meet at 7:00pm at the chrome statue in front of Seattle Central Community College, on Broadway, just north of the NW corner of Broadway & Pine. [Across the street from the bronze Hendrix statue.]
“From there, we will make our way West on Pine for a few blocks and then come back East on Pike back to Broadway, stopping periodically for music and refreshments on the way.
“Drummers are welcome to bring their drums, shakers, agogo bells, etc and play along as we vamp on basic Carioca (Rio) style samba. And everyone is welcome to dance! Wear as much black, white, and red as you can if you’ve got it.”
