We came, we saw, we conquered! Curumim came together once again to represent the beautiful tradition of Carnival in Nevada City's Mardi Gras Parade on February 14th, 2016.  Samba Da Terra's dancers and Curumim's intense percussion line paved the streets with smiles, dancing and a rocking rhythm. We were proud to be the grand finale of Nevada City's popular event
