Batala Goes Bigtime at DC United Game

Batala, originally uploaded by

That's me, third one down. We play Brazilian percussion and got our big break to play at the opening game of the DC United soccer team at RFK stadium. Our band is all-women and we had about 35 drums at this show. We are loud to begin with, but they had us miked ! When we did a sound check, the resulting sound was like the biggest thunderstorm you ever heard. My husband says I'm addicted to Batala and he's right. I was never a member of a sorority but this is the closest to a "sisterhood" you can get. I wouldn't trade the experience for the world.

Can we have you at every game?

I would love it, that's for sure ! I had to miss the last game and I was really mad about that. Just talk to our PR team and maybe we can set up a regular gig.
