DescriptionThis class will focus on the drumming style from Salvador de Bahia, Brazil called "Samba Reggae." The instrumentation includes 3-4 surdos (bass drums), caixas (snare drums) and repiniques (high-pitched drums with no snares/strings). This is open to everyone, regardless of musical background and experience. Less experienced players can focus on learning the basic rhythm of one instrument, while more experienced players can rotate between several different instruments to learn all of the parts. The class includes a final performance with samba dancers on the World Music and Dance concert.
