BEAT THAT! Samba and Djembe drumming

Updated: Feb 11

Join Laszlo Palko and the percussion team from Dark Peak Concert Band for a series of workshops introducing the fun of Samba and Djembe Drumming.

Traditional African and Brazilian Drumming

The workshops will involve learning to play traditional Brazilian, African and Afro-Brazilian rhythms on authentic Brazilian and African instruments.

African and Brazilian drumming is a lively, energetic and exhilarating experience and a great introduction to the fun of playing percussion.

The follow-up to the workshops will be a percussion play-day in the summer term exploring the full range of percussion including drum-kit, timpani, tuned percussion and host of other western and world-music instruments.
