JP Percussion in association with Masamba Samba School and Contemporanea Instrumentos Musicais presents Bossas Tour 2019 With Mestre Maurão, Gabriel Lopes and JP Courtney | Dublin, April 6th and 7th 2019
Bossas 2019 is a 3-week tour of workshops teaching the best of all the bateria breaks, stops, starts, calls, warm-ups, techniques and stylistic changes which will have just been premiered by the samba schools at the most recent carnival in Brazil.
JP Percussion and Masamba Samba School are passionate for ritmistas around the world to be able to keep up with the latest trends, fads and musical fashions which come out of carnival each year. They know through continuous work in the scene that musicians are equally as keen to keep up with these latest trends. For these reasons and for their sheer love and passion for Brazilian music they have created this exciting new workshop concept. The first Escola de Bateria – Bossas tour will impress, inform, up skill and entertain participants from all over Europe.
2019 will be the first of this new annual workshop tour programme. Presented by three world class leaders. Mestre Maurão (Rio), Gabriel Lopes (Rio) and JP Courtney (Ireland).
The workshop tour is lead by Mestre Maurão. He is well known for his musical ability and infectious command of several high ranking baterias in Rio, Mestre Maurão is regarded as one of the best in his field. After having never dropped one tenth of one point for the samba schools he has worked with his reputation is excellent.
Participants will receive written notes of the classes to take home for further study.
The workshops will be aimed at not only people who already play in Brazilian carnival groups but also musicians of other instruments, percussionists and music students from universities and schools.
