Community Outreach

In addition to performing, Kenia also enjoys participating in a variety of community projects, such as:

Residency Projects / Clinics

Kenia provides hands-on residency activities for children, which include basic percussion instruction and an introduction to creating music which blends familiar American standards with Brazilian samba. Kenia also presents professional workshops on Afro-Brazilian rhythms for adults; and master classes in Brazilian phrasing for jazz and vocal students and artists. These may be booked alone or in conjunction with a performance.

Community Events

Looking for a way to jazz up your next community event?  Kenia’s engaging performances will leave your audience wanting more.  From street fairs to summer concerts, Kenia has over 30 years of experience bringing Brazilian fun to local community events.

Private Events

Add a little exotic fare to your next private event.  Kenia’s performances are a welcome twist at weddings, corporate events, and private parties.

Kenia is a proud supporter of the Pittsburgh Aids Task Force, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Latin American Cultural Union and the ALS Association.
