Today’s session will see Rob Arcari talk you through the fundamental rhythm within samba, partido alto. Commonly played on pandeiro, cavaquinho, congas etc, this rhythm plays a key role in many sambas. Like the closely related telecoteco, the understanding of how the partido alto works unlocks a greater understanding of how samba works as a whole. No matter what instrument you play, this is essential knowledge. If you have a pandeiro at home, then dig it out, however it’s by no means essential. You could use a table top, a book, or just clap your hands.
