Understanding Samba Swing
Wednesday 29th April 2020 @ 7:00 pm AESTBy Donation
In this session Rob Arcari will explain what sets the samba swing apart from other music, and how this gives samba it’s distinctive feel. An understanding of this syncopation is essential for players of all instruments playing the style, from surdos to tamborims, and everything in between. We will have an open discussion with those that tune in live, as well as looking at some exercises to get it into our hands.
For this session it would be great if you had a couple of sticks and a practice pad, but as always you could improvise with whatever you have. You could even get away with using your hands on a table.
