Most of the members of Samba Legal have been playing their brand of Brazilian rhythms for the better part of two decades in the Monterey area. "Samba Legal" (pronounced "Lehgao") meaning hip or cool. The roots of these rhythms can be found in Pelourinho, a historic neighborhood of Bahia Brazil, where slaves were brought from Africa to work in the plantations. Music was one of the very few avenues of personal freedom for them, and the source rhythm was Jamaican Reggae. This music was creatively fused with the traditional Samba Rio samba to create a what is known today as "Samba Reggae".

The leader of Samba Legal, Mark Daoud, studied under renowned Salvadoran percussionist Marcio Peter, making many pilgrimages to Marcio's homeland to learn and bring back a more traditional style of Samba Reggae. He has learned from the actual originators of the music such as Olodum, Ile Aiye and Timbalada.

Samba Legal has performed throughout Monterey County at major events throughout the year like First Night, Parade of Lights, Good Old Days, Big Sur Marathon, Laguna Seca Raceway and West End Festival. Often the band is accompanied by the Samba Legal dancers, in full regalia, to bring the joy of the music they love to share.

Brazilian Drumming Class

Chautaugua Hall

$10.00

Everyone is welcome to join us for a fun session of drums. All levels are welcome, try it at least once. The deep sounds of the Bahian drums (from Bahia, Brazil) have a special connection with primordial beats that live within us. These beats charge our souls, releasing tension and stress, allowing for a better flow of life energy. The hall we play in is large and has high ceilings. The sound is naturally amplified, making it perfect for drums, music and dancing. Do you drum, shake, dance, flow? Do you want to? —————————————————————————- Drums and accecories will be provided as well as ear protection. Do not attend a class without ear protection. If you come early you'll get a quick walk through. If you show up and class has started, look a round and get a feeling of the instruments and start with you that you think you may like. First class is Free! The key thing to be aware of is the instructor's signals as well as from other members. If you do that and play along with the other beats given to you, you'll be playing along in no time! https://www.facebook.com/sambalegal HAVE FUN!!!
