This is truly a special workshop to come to Belfast. A rare opportunity to study with a true legend of the Sambadrome.

This weekender is for people who play in carnival bands, drumming groups, percussionists and other musicians. Carnival will have just finished a few weeks before the workshop so all the material will be fresh from the streets of Rio.


As a special treat participants will receive a free e-book containing information on the history of bateria bossas plus written notation of both all the bossas taught during the workshop and the grooves of the the top samba schools in Rio.

Learn new rhythms, musical arrangements, songs, and percussion instrument techniques all facilitated by world class tutors whilst meeting old friends and making new ones from other bands.


Be prepared to learn some great arrangements. The classes will be fun and challenging. Taught by 3 expert tutors who have a combined teaching experience of over 50 years.

Caixa, repique, surdo, tamborim, agogô, chocalho & timba. Please bring both your 1st and 2nd bateria instrument choice if possible.

If you're not able to bring any instruments, please contact us before registering.
