In these sessions:
Delegates are assigned instruments, taught the basics
of Samba, play simple rhythms as a Samba band, devise new rhythms on a theme determined by the client share these rhythms
with the group and perform them as a Samba band. The workshops encourage mutual respect, defy hierarchical boundaries and
focus the mind on the key messages of the day – all in the ‘feel-good’ energy of making Samba music.
The timings of a single session as part of a wider day of training can be flexible according to the client’s
requirements: The Sambatastic workshop is ideal as an icebreaker, starting the day in an innovative, energetic way; great
for consolidating the morning or days work in a session before lunch / end of day; and ideal for re-focussing the group in
those post- lunchtime doldrums.
