Bringing samba reggae and afro dance to another country is a huge responsibility. It talks about descent, the sense of recognition. It is very gratifying to be able to bring that tradition to the world. Today I not only represent Carla Sosa, but also Banda Tida, my grandfather and all the women who are part of this history.
To Ida de Jesus, Tita’s facilitator, “Being a part of the project is a huge responsibility; Take the tradition of samba reggae and neguinho do samba to the world.

In epidemics, the women in the group have had difficult times, but gradually they are recovering with courage and confidence. Tida is the power of creation, of change.
