World-famous drummer Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro is teaching percussion downtown this summer. Three nights a week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
And now, we've added samba dance instruction!
Samba for beginners at 7PM. Serious samba (intermediate level) at 8:30PM.
The bateria is taking great shape and we're offering classes through Sept 5, with a big performance planned for Saturday, September 5.
It's all free.
We're inviting the best players from around LA to make a fantastic batucada. This is a great opportunity to meet new sambistas from around town and sharpen your playing and dancing.
Please forward this email to all Brazilian percussionists and dancers you know.
