Hot Samba Nights

Hot Samba Nights

On a tiny beach in the port of San Luis Obispo on a Tuesday night in August, a group gathers on the beach while dogs run free. They unpack their vans and campers full of firewood, ice chests, and drums. Once the sun starts to go down and the light of the day fades they start up the fire, light their fire-spinning sticks gather around the fire with a drum in hand and start to play.
