Get your school into a carnival mood with a colourful and vibrant Samba Workshop. We introduce this polyrhythmic style, where the pupils become the sambistas and experience the excitement and physical impact of performing in a large percussion ensemble. Pupils learn about the roots of the style in African and Spanish/Portuguese music and through performance gain an understanding of the roles of each instrument used in samba, rhythmic loops, polyrhythms and call and response. In typical Mardi Gras style, pupils will form their own samba band and build up an exhilarating carnival performance, parading possibly in their newly designed carnival masks.
The Samba Workshop day is divided into forty minute sessions plus a presentation/assembly and we can cater for up to a maximum of seventy pupils in each.
