Last Saturday, November 16th, there was an open bateria rehearsal at the Quilombo Cultural Center. It was great to see percussionists from all across the samba community in Chicago come together to jam. We covered ijexá, coco and samba batucada beats. Thanks to everyone who attended – it was a lot of fun! These rehearsals will be occurring monthly, so keep an eye out on this blog (or on Facebook) for the next event.
