In collaboration with One Voice Music, this is a NEW course focusing on the unmistakable and beautiful sound of Brazil’s rodas de samba. We will also learn material from Rio’s new style of blocos which play in the roda de samba set up. All in all it should be a great way to spend a few days making beautiful music with sessions delivered by two of the UK’s most respected teachers.Instruments covered on this course will include Repique de mão, Reco Reco, Pandeiro, Tantan, Conga, Surdo & Cavaquinho.
During the sessions we will cover some arrangements of classic sambas, including from Fundo de Quintal, Beth Carvalho, Jovelina Perola Negra, Zeca Pagodinho, Candeia…, as well as instrumental technique, breaks and lyrics to some songs.
