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.
