Meet famous people in a disused car park!

After hours of rehearsal time we are nearly ready for Sundays extravaganza! It has been a brilliant experience. Quite amazing to meet Carlinhos Brown who was kind enough to spot that we didn't have everything we wanted for our music, and so lent us HIS berimbau. Being from Salvador da Bahia it shouldn't be that strange, however, considering he was standing in an immense carpark in Dagenham it was a small miracle! I remember having last seen him in Pelourinho, Salvador in 2002 just walking around in some kind of disguise. Happy days.
From training in a dark dusty warehouse to a immense carpark in Dagenham... Paralympic rehearsals

Us with living legend, Brazilian singer Carlinhos Brown who lent us HIS berimbau!! Behind us is the mock-up stage that has been seen in the Olympic ceremonies so far.

Dress rehearsals... awesome... check out his lenses...

Looks like a warehouse party!

Beautiful, Danca de Parafuso
