Workshops in the UK

Escola de Bateria presents
Roda de Samba
Percussion & Choral Workshop

A day of beautiful melodies and rhythms with J P Courtney & Mika De Oliveira, in association with ART BRASIL

SATURDAY 13 MAY 2017 12-5pm

ART BRASIL, King St Studios, 14A King St, Newcastle-under-Lyme, North Staffordshire, ST5 1EJ

Individual £25 (Limited places available)


The day will include lessons on a variety of percussion instruments and songs in Portuguese with a focus on arrangements with choral harmonies.


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 its audience members and is a great way to create a party atmosphere in a smaller venue setting i.e a bar, someone's home, the street, beach etc and anything can be used as an instrument.


Voice, Repique de Mão, Pandeiro, Tamborim, Agogô, Conga, Surdo, Tan tan.
