Together with his assistant Chris Quade Couto, he will show the small but subtle differences of the Sambas in Rio and São Paulo and teach a few brand-new paradighas and bossas from the Sambasulas of both cities. In addition, he will particularly explain the modern variations of the Surdos de Terceira, the complex arrangements of the Repiniques, the Caixa "em cima" (on the top of the arm), the different Tamborim ("carreteiro") and their connection to the Chocalho Grooves.
