The Robert E. Brown Center for World Music is pleased to announce free Saturday workshops with our community samba group Bloco Gavião, developed in collaboration with Capoeira Angola Center of Mestre João Grande-Illinois. Open to campus and community members, these workshops introduce Afro-Brazilian drumming traditions including samba-reggae and maracatu. The workshops are led by Mark Becker, a Capoeira Angola student of Contra-Mestre Denis Chiaramonte and a musician experienced with samba “blocos” in both Brazil and the United States. Instruments will be provided.

Each workshop will last approximately 90 minutes.
