Ologundê celebrates the rich Afro-Brazilian culture of Salvador, Bahia through a diverse repertoire of music and dance, including the rituals associated with candomble, a synthesis of the Yoruba and Catholic religions; the breathtaking capoeira martial arts dance; the maculele warrior dance; and the exhilarating samba de roda. The recently formed New York-based 15-member ensemble brings together an array of Brazilian artists, including former members of Bale Folclorico da Bahia and DanceBrazil, under the direction of noted percussionist Dende from the famed Timbalada band.
