World-famous drummer Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro is teaching free percussion classes downtown this summer.
We're forming a bateria to work up some authentic samba batucada, and we'll be meeting Wednesdays at 7:30PM for the next 7 weeks. It starts tonight!
And once again, it's all free.
We hope to recruit the best players around LA to make a fantastic batucada. This is a great opportunity to meet new sambistas from around town and sharpen your playing.
Please forward this email to all Brazilian percussionists and dancers you know. (For dancers, there's a great dance studio to rehearse in, with full length mirrors and a sprung floor.)
Wednesdays 7:30PM Roybal Learning Center 1200 W Colton Street Los Angeles, CA 90026
Bring a drum, and come have fun.
It's downtown, where the 101 meets the 110. Closest large intersection is W Temple and N Beaudry. There's street parking on Colton, and the entrance is on Colton. We rehearse in the dance studio next to the gym (people can direct you).
Study Brazilian percussion with Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro of the Mangueira samba school in Rio, known around the world as one of the great Brazilian percussionists. This is focused instruction on pandeiro, tamborim, tan-tan, caxixi, surdo, agogo, and other key instruments, especially as they are used in Pagode.
