Rodos Panayiotou - Afro-brazilian Percussion

In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to learn and play different authentic percussion instruments such as the surdo, ganza, caixa, tamborim, ago-go bells, repinique, cuica and pandeiro. During the lessons, the rhythmology, technique and phrasing of each instrument will be taught separately for each instrument. A lot of emphasis will be given to Afro-Brazilian genres such as Samba Batucada and Samba, Reggae. The workshop aims, besides the student’s personal musical experience, to encourage team communication, group creativity and show students the musical strengths and benefits of team-effort. This will be a unique experience for students since, by the end of the week, they will be able to perform what they have been taught in front of an audience.

Concerns professional and amateur musicians, dancers, and generally music lovers that want to take part in a percussion ensemble.
