In Bahia, the Bay of All Saints, everything flows together musically. Just like our workshop trip, where you will not only get a deep insight into afro-Brazilian music and rhythms in a small group with Dudu, but also experience a taste of the Brazilian way of life first hand.
The 10-day experience includes 4 hours of lessons per day in a small group, with plenty of time to enjoy Salvador and the nearby beaches. The lessons are divided into phases in which you will learn the technical aspects of each instrument, focusing on instrumental genres such as xekeré, pandeiro and timbal. In the second phase different Samba Reggae styles, modern grooves, batucada and Dudu Tucci's own compositions will be the main part of the program.
Since the workshop takes place directly at the historic Pelourinho, the symbolic heart of Samba Raggae and Candomblé, you can discover a lot of interesting and unusual sights during walks through the old part of the town after class. Music and the beats of drums fill the narrow streets of the town. You will find many groups rehearsing in the streets, as well as evening concerts by popular bands. For those more interested in the cultural background of the region, there are Afro-Brazilian museums and galleries that provide information about the history, country, culture and people. Right in the middle of it all, our workshop will take place. Dive right in with us into the vibrant life of this city rich in history and music and experience the colorful hustle and bustle of its people. Together with Dudu you can also go to concerts or visit Candomblé ceremonies.
