Mauricio Tizumba


Mauricio Tizumba is a charismatic artist, actor, dancer and musician from Belo Horizonte. In addition to his work as a lecturer at this year's Samba Syndrome, he will also enrich the concert stage on Friday evening with the traditional rhythms, songs and dances from the mountainous region of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.
Mauricio Tizumba is familiar with the different traditions of the Tambor Mineiro and stands like no other for the preservation and simultaneous renewal of this rich tradition. The mastering of the "dance" with the Gungas is one of his biggest achievement. This combination of drums and danced complementary rhythms is something unique in Brazilian traditional music.
