Bloco Dilanzenze

Our sound, Samba Reggae, can be heard not only in the shows of popular blocos like Olodum, but also from smaller blocos like Dilazenze in the smaller city of Ilheus. Blocos server as a community meeting place, where music is played freely, entrance is free, and music and dance are a form of free entertainment for people in the neighborhood. I filmed this at a regular Sunday night rehearsal back in 2003.
