So What Is Brazilian Samba Drumming Workshops All About?
Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world and one of the most ethnically diverse. Its culture is a dynamic mix of influences from indigenous Amerindian, European, African, and the United States.
Brazilian music can be traced back over 400 years to when Brazil was under Portuguese rule. During their coronation ceremonies and celebrations for their Kings & Queens their parade became known as the “Maracatu.”. The Maracatu emerged as the musical collective and dance for street celebrations The festivals evolved to include dancers and a “bateria” (percussion freestyle).
Fast forward 400 years and now Brazil is famous for the carnival festivals where thousands parade the streets of the Rio de Janeiro dancing & playing drums to samba rhythms. This legacy continues today as Brazilian music is often performed in the tradition of the Maracatu (comprised of instruments such as Ago-go bells, repinique, and surdo drums), extending far beyond the borders of Brazil
Just as an example, we can offer:
Afro Brazilian Dance

Stop! Before Booking Any Brazilian Samba Drumming Workshops...
Let me ask you a simple question... with so much choice on the internet how do you know you are getting 100% Authentic Brazilian Samba Workshops at the best price, can all these companies claiming to be providers of workshops be relied on?
At Trap Media we kid you not when we say we can guarantee you that no one else in the UK can offer a wider range of professional workshops at an amazing price than us.
So before booking with someone else consider these questions below and you will realise Trap Media is the company of choice for any creative workshops nationwide. We just don't provide workshops we provide an experience you will never forget.
Do they have CRB Checks, Public Liability and a Child Protection Policy in place to safe guard vulnerable people?
Are the workshops authentic? Meaning is the workshop a traditional based multicultural experience?
Can they provide you with at least 5 testimonials from various organisations?
Can they provide you with workshops in Dance, Drama, Music, Visual, Asian and African Arts to your requirements?
Can they deliver nationwide? If so are you sure they will turn up or cancel on you at short notice?
Do they have any credibility or do you know how long they have been around for?
Do they have a dedicated support team to help you coordinate your event?
Well if they can't answer these questions above with full confidence we strongly recommend not using them quite frankly! We take pride and passion in every workshop we provide and you will not be disappointed.
You really don't want to ruin your event or day by booking with the wrong company. We have seen so many organisations let down by companies claming to provide similar workshops - so choose wisely.
Samba Drumming Workshop @ Girl Guiding Celebration
What Happens in a Samba Music Workshop?
Samba drumming is one of the most popular forms of music in Brazil. It is widely viewed as Brazil’s national musical style.
In these workshops children practice and perform different Samba rhythms, first using their voices and then on the different Samba drums. Then the whole piece is put together to create a carnival atmosphere.
Participants learn to play authentic Brazilian rhythms and instruments with correct technique in the dynamic Carnival style.
We can customise the workshop for any level to suit the age and experience of the group. Participants work with the whole range of Samba instruments, including surdo, repinique, timba, tambourine and all kinds of percussion, and will learn to master the characteristic rhythmic grooves of Samba.
Participants learn to play authentic Brazilian rhythms and instruments with correct technique in the dynamic Carnival style. Phonics and word-rhymes aid musical memory so multi-section pieces can be learned and performed easily, working at a level to suit the age and experience of the group. participants work with the whole range of Samba instruments, including surdo, repinique, timba, tambourine and all kinds of percussion, and will learn to master the characteristic rhythmic syncopations and grooves of Samba.
Sessions may run from 30mins to 1 hour, depending on the age group, and fit with the schools timetable where possible. The time may be used in many ways; often schools want every class to have at least one contact so everyone has an opportunity to share the excitement. We also encourage a performance towards the end of a project.

Dear Trap Media, I’m not sure if Yve has contacted you since we had the African Drumming workshop on 24th October. But the session was excellent, the African drummer (Mohamed) was interactive, friendly and had the group engaged to the African Drumming Workshops. Many thanks for a fabulous African experience!

Dear Trap Media, We had a fantastic day on Sunday and I would like to say how marvelous the African Drumming workshops were.
