Balé Folclórico da Bahia, the only professional folk Dance Company in Brazil, has earned acclaim for its high-energy, spectacularly-produced live performances and a repertory based on Bahian folkloric dances of African origin, including samba and capoeira. "When the Balé Folclórico da Bahia comes to town, it's time to party... [they offer] an experience that is pure theater, intoxicating in its sensuality, vibrant energy, and commitment." (New Jersey Star-Ledger) This magnificent 30+ ensemble of musicians and dancers is a colorful and dynamic show that will blow the roof off the NHCC.

Gaelic Storm

Tuesday, November 19

KiMo Theatre

Gaelic Storm has earned a reputation as one of the world-music scene's preeminent Celtic bands. With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had three albums debut at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, and the group's ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal. But while many of their songs fit comfortably on contemporary radio, the band also has a knack for writing songs that sound as if they've been sung in Irish pubs for generations.

Moria Ensemble

N4th Theater

4904 4th St. NW

12:30pm

Soriba Fofana

Thursday, November 12

Moria was founded in 2010 by master artists Ibrahimasory "Soriba" Fofana and Alhassane Camara from Guinea, West Africa. Moria is the name of Camara's home village, and the ensemble was born out of both artists' life work as dancer and musician in the city of Conakry, Guinea. New Mexico drummers and dancers create a full ensemble which portrays the essence and spirit of West Africa. Moria's vision is to bring people together and share happiness through music, dance, song, and theater.

The N4th show will have the full drum and dance ensemble, while the library show will be a smaller group focusing on the music and songs of Guinea.
