(392) I was really turned off by this one last I played because the first levels color palette made my eyes feel like they were bleeding. Holy shit though I wish I would’ve just finished that level because the rest of the stages are fucking gorgeous. and the music is so poppin. There is one exception to the last two things, Carnival Zone, fuck Carnival Zone. Also, fuck you Knuckles you little shit and you goblin ass laugh. This is definitely my favorite of the original Genisis titles.
Batucada do Leste proudly present our 2009 Enredo “fiveAoVivo” (Five Alive). by Carnaval.com Studios
Known as ‘Batucada do Leste’ ('Drummers of the East’), the East Bay Community Samba School is an exciting and talented community based samba group in the East Bay. The group is comprised of men and women of all musical skill levels, under the direction of Samuel Daffner. We proudly present our 2009 Enredo “fiveAoVivo” (Five Alive). Our goals are to learn about Samba music, become proficient in its performance, and ultimately to perform in the Carnival Festival and other venues. We are committed to BIG FUN playing drum music in a positive, family-friendly environment. Batucada do Leste features the talented performance and teaching of Artistic Director Nives Wetzel de Cediel!!! Nives brings with her a positive and kid-friendly approach as well as a wealth of experience, and is currently teaching a contingent of talented high school students from Emeryville High School whose 'ala’ is known as 'Pasaro de Fogo’ (Firebird/Phoenix). Last but not least, we are grateful to Sonia Russell for taking on the substantial and important duties of Logisitics and Support. We’re building the Carnaval Day support team, if you know folks who would like to get involved, please have them e-mail email@example.com. On Feb 22 we will begin weekly rehearsals with drummers, musicians and dancers together every SUNDAY 12 - 3 pm at Emeryville High School located at 1100 47th Street in Emeryville, CA. We are rehearsing in the gym, which is about half way down 47th Street from San Pablo. 2009 looks to be another banner year for the School…stay tuned for more Carnaval details. Keep your eye on Batucada do Leste, we’re five years old now and we’re growing our Roots of Revival and planting the Seeds of Change!!!!
