Mahico

The Mahico and Aruanda crews are joining hands to invite the entire community to be a part of Dance for Brazil – a day to flood Brazil with support, this Sunday in Byron Bay.

In the past few weeks, Brazil has experienced a massive natural disaster, the largest flood in the country’s history, affecting more than 2.1 million people in over 350 towns and leaving 618,000 people homeless. Following the wave of support and compassion from both Brazilians and international communities, the Mahico and Aruanda crews are joining hands to invite the entire community to be a part of a fundraising event.

The entire proceeds from the event will be redirected to one of the organisations in Brazil actively involved in reallocating families and managing the essential supplies people need. Think globally, act locally and dance your support.
Music at the event will include sets from Groove Bahia, Batukanum, Darlan, Monsieur Diop, Pumah, Salve Jorge
and Xuja. There will be a kids’ space, food and market stalls.

Organisers are asking for a $30 donation – or more! Kids are free.

Sunday, 10am to 9pm at Playground, Byron Bay – 4 Grevillea Street, Byron Bay.

Tickets from eventbrite.com.au/e/dance-for-brazil-tickets-906338231047.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
