We have just started a Brazilian Batucada group lead by master percussionist Everton Isidoro from Salvador de Bahia, Brazil!
Many of us are learning everything from scratch so you don't need any previous experience. We are all very friendly, you will love the positive vibes and energy!
Here's a fun video of our 1st rehearsal (some people were experienced but others just started!): https://youtu.be/8ae7fAQezzI
