Colectivo 25th Anniversary Celebration & Samba Dance Party

Posted: September 24, 2018

Colectivo turns 25 this year! We’ve invited a few of our close coffee partners from Brazil and Colombia to join us for a party in celebration of 25 years of Community, Creativity & Coffee. We hope you’ll join us too!

Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018
Back Room @ Colectivo Prospect, 7pm
Free! Presentation at 7pm, followed by live Afro-Colombian music by Telembí and a samba dance party w/ Samba Da Vida MKE and Panadanza Dance Company. Complimentary refreshments, cash bar.

Welcome Alexandre Gonzaga (Minas Estate Coffees) and Fabrício Andrade (SanCoffee) from Brazil, and Pedro Echavarría (Pergamino) from Colombia. Sample coffee and enjoy light refreshments.

Telembí combines Afro-Colombian and Cuban musical influences to create a dynamic and danceable blend of Música Tropical. Built around the folkloric Marimba de Chonta, played along the Pacific coasts of Colombia and Ecuador, Telembí incorporates Colombian coastal rhythms such as Currulao, Cumbia, and Puya, as well as Cuban Son and Rumba in this new Milwaukee-based ensemble.

Samba Da Vida MKE
Milwaukee’s own Brazilian Samba school since 2010 and part of the International Grooversity drumming network spearheaded by Marcus Santos, Samba Da Vida MKE brings together people of all-ages and musical levels to celebrate Afro-Brazilian and Carnaval traditions of Salvador da Bahia, Rio, and São Paulo. SDV MKE is featured in parades and performances throughout Greater Milwaukee and focuses on maintaining and promoting the rich musical culture of Brazil. Directed by Julio Pabón and Bony Plog-Benavides.

Panadanza Dance Company has been established since 2008 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by artistic director Karlies Kelley, a native of the Republic of Panama. Panadanza is an all women dance ensemble that utilizes live music, singing, acting and colorful folkloric costumes to bring alive the identities of the Caribbean, Central and South America. Panadanza performs and teaches for a wide range of audiences, and provides a variety of community leadership programs. Panadanza’s mission is to awaken the spirit in all ages through teaching and performing dances and music of Latin America, helping to build trust, confidence, respect and leadership among all communities.

If you can’t make it to the Milwaukee soirée, there will be two additional opportunities to meet the producers and sample coffees in Madison and Chicago:

Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 at 2pm at Colectivo on the Square - AND - Monday, Oct. 15, 2018 at 7pm at Colectivo Andersonville. Cheers!
