Samba Workshop with Eraldo Marques
Sat, April 22, 2017, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM BST
Dear drummers, percussionists, musicians and curious folk.
Slick Stick Sambastic (www.slicksticksambastic.com) are delighted to welcome Eraldo Marques of Global Grooves (www.globalgrooves.org) to our homebase @ Huddersfield University, he will lead a workshop suitable for beginners, improvers & experienced players. In this workshop the focus will be on Samba percussion playing. Also included in the workshop will be information about the roots of samba, how it works, how it is done in Brazil, and different techniques.
Eraldo's childhood beginnings within the percussion scene ( with Meninos do Morumbi - Sao Paulo, Brazil ) have provided him with a real love & understanding of the power of youth participation in the arts. As well as co-ordinating, administering & delivering musical content within Global Grooves & Bangdrum worksops, he has inspired a host of UK tutors with his knowledge & almost serene approach to workshop leading.
Eraldo has aided the development of a number of percussion & dance groups including Meninos Oldham & Grupo SambAfriq & regularly performs with ensemble groups around the world.
We look forward to hearing from you!
