Trinidad Steel Drums
“Philadelphia Pan Stars put on a great performance during the competitive portion of the event. Delivered a rousing rendition of the late Maestro's 'Fiery.'”

Pulse-pounding Brazilian Samba
“Community samba school spreading the joy & excitement of Brazilian percussion through music education and performance.”

From New Orleans to Brazil and Venice to Trinidad, the last days before Lent are the occasion for some of the world’s best street parties – and most exciting street music. This year, Crossroads will celebrate Carnival with Brazilian samba from our old friends Unidos da Filadelfia and Trinidad steel drums from the award-winning Philadelphia Pan Stars Steel Orchestra.

Begun in the Spring of 2005, Unidos Da Filadelfia is the city of Philadelphia’s premier Escola De Samba in the tradition of Carnaval parade organizations in Brazil like the samba schools of Rio de Janeiro and blocos afros of Salvador da Bahia. Founded in 2005, the school’s mission is to spread the joy and excitement of Brazilian percussion through music education and performance. Members of the school learn to play the traditional percussion instruments and learn the rhythmic styles of Brazilian Carnaval, and perform at various community events throughout the city. Classes take place most Sunday afternoons at Studio 34 on Baltimore Avenue.

The Philadelphia Pan Stars are based in Southwest Philadelphia, but perform traditional and original steel band music at festivals and competitions throughout the northeastern US and the Caribbean region.
