MANY THANKS to the great Batucaxé for providing us all with another awesome Carnaval experience here in the desert southwest. For those of you who didn’t make it down to Armory Park for the festivities, here are a few videos to give a taste of the day and the Axé, and for those of us who were there, a reminder of what is possible. Let’s have some MORE!!!
