Baque forte Percussion

The group Baque Forte Berlin was officially founded in the summer of 2006 after a few workshops held in Berlin by percussionist Fabiano Lima. A few friends who were thrilled with the energy and magic of Maracatu Nação drumming provided the incentive to form the group.

They have participated in the Berlin marathon every year since 2008. They can be seen often on the streets of Berlin and around Germany, at street festivals such as the Karneval der Kulturen and Fête de la Musique. They have two locations in Berlin in Kreuzberg and in Friedrichshain.

Fabiano Lima: “The best experience for us is when the runners still have enough energy at the 38km-mark to dance to our music or thank us with applause, and when we see that we have helped give them the extra push to continue on for the last few kilometres.”
