Tucson monsoons bring energy to the inhabitants of the desert. Everything gets green for a moment and the city begins to make its own special rhythms. Sol Axe, a nonprofit dance community, are echoing those sounds with drums, music, food and dancing on Saturday, Aug. 1 for their seventh annual fundraiser, Monsoon Mania. The all ages dance party will take place at the Rhythm Industry Performance Factory, 1013 S. Tyndall Ave., from 7 to 11 p.m. Sol Axe, Sambatuque and Capoeira Malandragem will perform Brazilian style music, drumming, dancing and capoeira. There will also be a DJ set and food trucks. Proceeds benefit Many Mouths, One Stomach and the All Souls Procession weekend. Tickets are $10 and the event is free to children 12 and under. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit Sol Axe's Facebook page.
