    The pulse of Pako Festa begins with the shiver of maracas and the flutter of a rhumba - and we welcome our leading lady Carmen Miranda!

  • The beat of Pako Festa!

    The beat of Pako Festa!

    It's in the clatter of the clog dancers, the blast of the bagpipes and the pure power of the African percussion. You can hear it in the beat of the Japanese Taiko and the ancient drumming of the Indian Dohl. It's all around you, it's everywhere, you can't avoid it's rhyme or rhythm. It's the sound of the heart of our fabulous Festa.
