Batala – Hey! video

I am a huge marching band nerd. For seven years I played quads, in high school and college, and I’d probably keep doing it if I could. And I am more than a bit jealous of how much fun Batala has at their shows. The all-women ensemble, playing Afro-Brazilian and Samba-Reggae rhythms, seems to pop up everywhere around town, at parades, festivals and even Fort Reno. They recently made a video for the 48 Hour Film Project‘s DC competition that won “Best/Most Drums”, a category that has my full support.
