What you'll do
Let´s embark on an experience through the sounds of Brazil. We will start with a 10-minute lecture presenting the samba school instruments—caixa, surdo, repique, tamborim, agogô and chocalho—and their functions. We will play for 40 minutes, with 6-minute turns for each one, in order to try all the instruments of a samba school drum section. During the final 10 minutes, you will get the chance to play the instruments you liked most. Let´s feel the excitement and vibrations of Brazilian music.
I am a professional musician, and I've been a drummer for over twenty years. I've participated in carnival ensembles, such as Monobloco and Quizomba, where I had a 15-year stint. I'm a Brazilian rhythm instructor and I've played with, recorded, and have performed live with the Unidos de Vila Isabel samba school drum section.
Musical instruments I will provide you with a variety of musical instruments.
Where you'll be
We will be at the Maracatu Brazil school, which is a musical reference in Rio de Janeiro. The school offers several courses, as well as studios, an instrument store, and a friendly bar. The school is a great supplier of musicians from several street parades, among them, the Empolga às 9. Estaremos na Maracatu Brasil, a escola de música que é referência no ensino da percussão no Rio de Janeiro.
