Drum, sing, play instruments, move, make new friends. A great new Saturday project for young people aged 11-18 from Jubacana at Band on the Wall supported by Brighter Sound.
A series of 12 afternoons of Carnival drumming, music making, and fun for young people aged 11-18. Led by the young leaders of Manchester-based Jubacana at Band on the Wall and supported by a team of great musicians, and drummers directed by Holly Prest. No experience necessary, just loads of friendly energy and enthusiasm!
These accessible workshops will pass on some of the most exciting mass drum techniques of Brazil on a wide variety of traditional Northeast-Brazilian percussion instruments (all provided) as well as offer opportunities to play drum kit, guitars, keyboards, and sing. Bring along any other instruments you play to add to the mix; brass, wind, strings, or mandolin! Infectious rhythms, melodic instruments and voices will join together to create a formidable youth sound like no other.
