Repique with Jhones Thuram
Saturday 5th September 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 pm AEST
To round off the series we’re delighted to welcome back Jhones Thuram. This is an opportunity to dive further down the rabbit hole of his favourite instrument, the repique. We will be looking at some more calls, variations and solo phrasing with a true expert.
Jhones started his trajectory at carnival in 2004, playing repique for Acadêmicos da Rocinha samba school. By the year 2011 he had progressed with his playing, and was given the opportunity to become Rocinha’s drum director. As well as his beloved Rocinha, Jhones has paraded as a ritmista in many other schools such as Portela, Salgueiro, São Clemente …
Alongside Rocinha, he also currently directs the drums at Imperatriz and had previously directed in Cubango and Viradouro.
He has been mestre de bateria of the university bateria at PUC Rio since 2011, where he is also responsible for the bloco “Filhos da PUC”.
This workshop will be aimed at an intermediate/advanced level. It will be expected that you are comfortable making the basic sounds on the drum, and playing the basic groove. Any doubts then check our FAQ.
