Samba Batucada

Group of people playing samba instruments with leader at the front
  • Every Monday

A three week course in samba studies. This course is designed to give an introduction to playing the various instruments of the samba bateria, enabling players to develop their setup and skills whilst building up stamina in a 15-piece bateria. Featured instruments include surdo, caixa, repique, tamborims and chocalho.

Delivered by São Paulo sambistas Eraldo De Sa Marques and Luiz Fernando (Mikiba), this course will help participants develop playing technique in a fun, friendly and supportive environment. Participants will gain first-hand knowledge of how the samba schools function in the community in Brazil, experience the conversations between the different instruments in the bateria, and enjoy the full-on energy of ensemble playing.

This course is suitable for both complete beginners and intermediate players. Ear plugs recommended.

Some instruments can be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
