Philip Galinsky visits EEDS

On Wednesday, for the second time in as many years, EEDS was thrilled to host master sambista and ethnomusicologist Philip Galinsky for an intense three-hour samba percussion workshop. The founder and director of Samba New York, Galinsky is one of the foremost educators of, and authorities on, Brazilian music in the United States.
