Escola de Samba w/ Dann Sherrill


This 6-week class is the perfect introduction to the sensuous rhythms of

Brazilian samba and all its derivatives. Not only will you learn the rhythms

but you will learn them on all the major percussion instruments of the

Brazilian “bateria” (percussion ensemble).

Learning the techniques and the rhythms need not be a struggle. As a matter

of fact, the people that play these instruments in the large Escola de Samba

ensembles in Brazil are not professional musicians. Most are just regular

folks who are crazy for samba and the thrill of being a part of a powerful large

ensemble. You will experience this power.
