Coral Beats clean up the beaches


Members of Coral Beats, Bermuda’s own all female Brazilian percussion band have been busy on the weekends cleaning up Bermuda’s beaches and scouring the land and ocean for unique instruments to use in a rhythm in their upcoming cert to be held in the PPMH Hall at Warwick Academy on Sunday, 10th March at 7pm.

The show will be a culmination of a very intense five day workshop with visiting Brazilian artist, Mestre Bola. Sue Riihiluoma, Coral Beats leader says, “We will have been through a very inspiring process of hard work, endless drumming, singing, clapping and repeating

rhythms for hours on end and will be very excited to share our hard work and passion with the community”.
