Samba Elégua’s show: Fundraiser for Uruguay, Saturday May 28, 2016 at 8:30pm

Last April, a tornado hit the city of Dolores, Uruguay, and the results were pretty devastating for the whole nation, as you may have seen on the news. Mano con Mano (“Hand Holding Hand”), an Uruguayan-Canadian community organization was holding a fundraiser to collect for the Uruguayan Government Crisis Committee.

They invited us to perform for an event that was held on Saturday, May 28 at Liuna Local 183, 1263 Wilson Ave #200, North York. It was a total success and we are so pleased we could give our hand to this great cause!
