So many thanks to San Francisco percussionist extraordinaire Jimmy Biala for hosting a high-energy workshop at EEDS last week. Jimmy spent some great time refining our playing techniques, and then taught us some sick new breaks to work into our batucada repertoire. We will be integrating some of them into our 2015 Carnaval performance in March. Tamborim choreography, anyone?
Thanks again to Jimmy for making the trip out – and check the EEDS Facebook Page tomorrow for a video of us in action during the workshop!
