Instrumentation will be made up of surdos, caixa, repique, tamborim, timba, agogo bell and ganza (shaker). We will mix and match brazilian styles to give a broad base, looking at different techniques of playing, then learning some breaks and fitting the arrangements with carnaval songs from the diverse regions of Brazil. At the end there will be a gig where we can wow the audience with our new skills and feel a well deserved sense of accomplishment.

All instruments are provided. Please don't worry about turning up by yourself, this is completely normal and you will be welcomed in.
