Rocinha samba – surdos 1 & 2

Samba specifics for surdos 1 & 2

The introduction

This is how we will start the Rocinha samba during performances – with a long call-and-response intro between the director and the band.

Since the workshop Tim and Darryn have re-arranged the intro, so what we play now is different to what we learned in November. Part 1 is the same as it was, but parts 2 and 3 have changed. The parts the directors play have not changed, however.

See Rocinha samba – whole band for videos of the intro.

Mocidade break

The band plays the Mocidade break, with a focus on the surdos.

Liberdade break

Since we filmed this in November, Tim has decided to change the surdo pattern a bit.

New version of this video to come – when Tim teaches us the new version.

Funk break

Focus on the surdos playing the Funk break.
