EducArte’s Brazilian Percussion Workshop & Jam: Ijexá Rhythm Edition
This event is free and open to the public. While primarily intended for adults, everyone is welcome. Please note that this time the workshop will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church at 4512 College Avenue in College Park, MD.
Learn from and jam with Brazilian samba master percussionist André Coelho from Rio de Janeiro. André will show and demonstrate each of the essential Brazilian percussion instruments. Participants will learn basic rhythms and the event will finish with a jam session. Also come early for our dance workshop with Andressa Telles immediately before the percussion ensemble!
We will have some percussion instruments, like pandeiros, tamborins, and surdos for participants. But please bring your instrument if you have one.
Please bring agogôs and congas if you have them because we will focus on ijexá rhythms for the next few classes.
This is a regularly occurring Brazilian percussion meetup to create a new community ensemble. All levels are welcome to participate.
The event is a program of College Park-based arts non-profit EducArte. Special thanks to event sponsor, the College Park Arts Exchange.
