The purpose of these rehearsals is to prepare a show to be performed across the year. The set lasts for about 80 minutes. Past performances include Womad, Glastonbury and Rio Carnival. We are aiming for some large scale events for 2022.
In 2019, among other great events, we headlined the Street band encontro in Glasgow and also headlined Coburg samba festival in Germany.
Rhythms covered - Samba (done a few different ways), Coco, Quadrilha, Xote, Ciranda, Funk, 12/8, Ijexa, Maculelê plus a few of our own rhythm inventions, lots of breaks, stops, calls, responses, songs, choreography and great arrangements. Plus the added bonus of being tapped into the wider Brazilian percussion community in the UK, Europe and Rio.
We will be adhering to all necessary government guidelines in order to keep members of our group as safe as possible. We expect all participants to follow any guidelines put in place by us or the venue.
