Video: Beira Mar Brasil and the audience at the Northfield Rotary Youth Exchange fundraiser

Robbie and Griff Wigley with niece Ellen Robbie and I attended last night’s To Brasil and Back fundraiser for the Northfield Rotary Youth Exchange with our niece, Ellen. I was relieved of photo duty by Vicki Dilley but couldn’t resist capturing a little video of the music and energy of Beira Mar Brasil, the combination of music by the Robert Everest Expedition (“a Minneapolis-based Latin-American and Mediterranean influenced world music ensemble”), Samba dancers Edilson Lima and Vanessa Dos Santos Luiz, and dancer/vocalist, Dandara. The audience, led by inbound students from Brasil from around the region, really got into it. Watch this 4-minute video clip:
