Samba specifics for surdos 1 & 2
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.
