March 19, 2017 4:00-5:30PM Afro-Brazilian Percussion Class with Dendê

Join master percussionist Dende for the next edition of this introductory class in Afro-Brazilian percussion for just $15.

Since 2001 Dende has worked with his Arrastao in New York, performing at venues from the Brooklyn Academy of Music to Central Park Summerstage. Now that he is living in Philadelphia he is holding auditions for percussionists of all levels (beginner to advanced) to become members of the group.

Members will learn to play timbal, caixa, surdo, repique, xequere, tamborim, pandeiro and much more with a former member of Timbalada! Dendê will teach you proper technique, exercises, tuning and maintenance, improvisations and soloing, traditional rhythms from candomble and samba de roda as well as the original rhythms and breaks from bands like Timbalada, Ilê Aiyê and Olodum.

Private lessons can also be arranged in person or via Skype. Email for more info.
