Get together with friends and experience the wonderful world of Brazilian rhythm as you become a samba group in just one afternoon!
Before you get started Jordan will share the fascinating origins of samba: one of South America's most popular styles of music. You will then pick up your instruments (these are all supplied for you) and Jordan will guide you through the first song and show you how to respond to him as the samba mestre. You'll get the chance to have a go at a solo performance, where you'll be cheered on by your fellow guests, before really turning up the party vibes when you re-enact parading as a samba band. Think Rio carnival!
Jordan has over 12 years of experience playing and teaching samba to people of all ages so is the ideal host for this uplifting experience. With any younger guests, Jordan will incorporate rhythm games and body percussion as this is a wonderful way to introduce children to drumming.
