SAMBA AFRO DRUM WORKSHOP!

Come learn the deep grooves and roots of SAMBA AFRO as well as samba reggae. Understand the differences and the correct way to play.
Learn from someone who has grown up in the Bloco Afro ILE AIYE - the first of it's kind in Bahia, that others, such as Olodum, followed.

He has been the most recognized teacher for the Samba Reggae/Afro Ensemble classes at California Brazil Camp, and Sol Axe has been studying with him for a decade.

Surdos (bass), timbal (congas) caixa (snare), repenique, agogo (bell), chekere, pandiero, and any capoeira instruments (atabaques) or djembes.
