Brazilian Timbau technique and solo playing.
Brush up your Timbau skills this summer with this new Timbau technique course from Global Grooves. Timbau is used widely in Samba-Reggae and Axé styles of Brazilian Samba.
Lead by Leon Patel, participants will study basic and advanced techniques, common rhythms and grooves, solo phrasing and how to devise and build your own Timbau breaks in groups. By the end of the five weeks we will have developed several rhythms and unison solo phrasing as well as increased our stamina and technique.
The course is designed for beginners to advanced participants.
If you have never played the Timbau before then some hand drumming experience is necessary and will suite those who have played instruments such as conga, and Djembe.
Some instruments can be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
Warning – Timbau playing is energetic and loud. Bring some earplugs if you can!
