SIMULTANEOUS FEMALE PERCUSSIONIST AND DANCE PERFORMANCE BY CRIS ALVES

Amazing percussionist and dancer performing live. This rare performance is unique since the Cris

Amazing percussionist and dancer performing live. This rare performance is unique since the Cris Alves, a female percussionist, is simultaneously dancing and and playing the drums, all synchronized, which is very difficult. To play the Brazilian Tamborin is not an easy task while in an official performance watched by thousands, and yet playing the instrument at the same time as the she is dancing and commanding, is really something very rare. Her name is Cris Alves, and she has been a Samba Queen for Cubango Samba School in Rio de Janeiro. This is so rare that even male percussionists where astonished to see her ability for such performance. The video was made at Rio de Janeiro ´s Sambadrome last year, and is composed of striking moments for percussion and drummers lovers.
