Brazilian Rhythmic Experience

with Theo Mizu'




Brazil is a continental country, with a great musical variety that goes way beyond samba.


The workshop aims to explore this, reaching genres from the Northeast of the country, offering a


mind and body rhythmic experience to musicians of all levels.


20-25 people




We’ll be dividing the workshop into two ‘1-hour classes’, where the first hour

is focused on body relaxation and introduction (theoretical and practical) to rhythm Maracatu.

Before playing it, everyone should feel comfortable with it, so we do activities

that encourage body percussion and dancing learning methods.

Then people are encouraged to choose between getting an instrument

or dancing Maracatu, and we teach the moves and lines.





We come back to a more relaxing hour, where we work on Baião and derivates.


For these, we encourage more people to join for dancing, as I’ll teach Forró dancing


while Ramon teaches the rhythmic variances for who prefers to stay playing.












We believe a rhythm is better learned and incorporated if first absorbed with body


and then played, and we invite you all to experience with us this musical journey.
