"Dear Sambistas, we kindly introduce to the Samba Bateria: The Cajón!" 
In this workshop we will incorporate the Cajón - this versatile wooden box from Peru, which is usually played as a small accompaniment instrument in small ensembles - as a new sound color and with a fat beat into the big Samba formation. Firstly we will work together on the Cajón different traditional and modern grooves and breaks. Later, we add the famous Samba instruments and mix the dry sound of the Cajón with surdos, caixas, tamborims, timbals and repiniques and build a refined piece from it.

How does that sound together? Very cool! You can hear it here:

Welcome to this workshop are all rhythmically proofed Sambistas, who want to dive into new, creative sound worlds and to get to know a new instrument. The basic playing techniques on the Cajón will be taught in the workshop. Please bring your own Cajón and your preferred Samba-Instrument, which you must indicate at the registration.
