¡Reviva! was fortunate enough to receive a fulbright-hayes grant promoting cultural exchange in Nicaragua and the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua (R.A.A.S). A majority of the tour was spent with local musicians at Bluefields SoundSystem in Bluefields learning traditional Maypole songs that were to be played in Beholden Barrio at the height of the month long Maypole annual celebration. There were 7 contestants who each sang a song during the performance to be judged by the crowd. Kali Boom, Papa Bantam, and Mr. Lion were the winners and traveled to Pearl Lagoon and Orinoco with us for the remaining shows.
