Using art to speak to the times, Bloco Obini performs Afro Brazilian bloco drumming, with uplifting songs affirming that we are all royalty, and come from Kings and Queens. Bloco Obini represents the empowerment of not only women, but an entire generation, using the drum as a spiritual weapon to heal and educate, serving communities locally and abroad.
