The 6th Annual Samba Fest takes place Saturday in Hartford, and it’s a celebration of several cultures including Brazil, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Peru. The event will feature a variety of food and music.

Professor Eric Galm started Samba Fest in 2007. He initially started the event with funds from a Mellon Global/Urban course redevelopment grant. The first Samba Fest featured performances by several Hartford-based musicians as well as the Trinity Samba Ensemble. In addition, Professor Galm collaborated with Trinity’s annual “Fun Fair,” a student-organized community outreach fair for area children. Galm joins Fox CT to talk about the event and his group also performs for the Morning Extra.
