Samba Fusion in Ireland 2023

Samba Fusion in Ireland

Hosted by Sambastef

Dates: Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November 2023

Tutor Ravin Jayasuriya

Workshop details:
The weekend will cover carnival rhythms from Brazil (Samba, Samba Reggae & Maracatu), Raz will also teach grooves that mix elements from Brazilian & Cuban rhythms creating uplifting and funky dance grooves, which are challenging and enjoyable to learn.

Raz’s clear instruction will help to develop your listening and drumming skills. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be fully aware of the interplay between the instruments and understand how the pieces are put together. We’ll also explore dynamics within the arrangements and work on playing techniques for each of the instruments.
