Full description
Percussion in Bahia is part of people's daily lives, and it is present on several occasions, either in a Samba de Roda, or a Candomblé ceremony. It transmits joy and vibrancy, provides rhythm to the melodies, intensifies musical arrangements, and it is also good for the health as it improves the spirits. Bahia is known for its cultural and artistic production, a foundation for several artistic traditions in Brazil. On this tour, you'll visit an area of vibrant cultural and musical production, aiming to experience the creativity that fosters the process of producing sounds and rhythms inspired by the African continent. The itinerary will help you get acquainted with the sounds of Bahia, through a workshop and a class taught by talented percussionists. You'll learn about the versatility of Brazilian musical production, ranging from the samba reggae, a rhythm that fascinated Michael Jackson, to jazz.

The percussion court! What a great experience.

Excellent! Maestro Macambira listens whatever the level of the person. Super fealing, a good exchange including with the guide. On the other hand too short: 1h30 of lessons over 3h announced.
