An afternoon of beautiful melodies and rhythms from the homes, streets, bars and clubs of Brasil. The popular music setting of a Roda de Samba utilises the many beautiful Samba songs but in a more intimate setting than a Bateria from a Samba School or Bloco. It relies on vocal, dance and clapping participation from audience members and is a great way to create a party atmosphere where anything can be used as an instrument.
The day will include lessons on a variety of percussion instruments, optional cavaquinho class, songs in Portuguese and traditional arrangements. The cavaquinho class will be limited in numbers and can be booked during registration on a first come first served basis.
Simple percussion parts alongside easy to learn melodies will make this workshop a fun learning experience for all drummers and string players.
Cavaquinho, Repique de mão, Surdo with hide head on stand, Rebolo, Pandeiro with nylon head, Tamborim with hide head. Optional addition of caixa and 2 conga parts for experienced players.
