Rhythm Workshop with Cabruera at the Embassy of Brazil in London

0

The Beat of the Brazilian Tambourine

Cabruera is currently one of the most important Brazilian bands in terms of the preservation of our traditional rhytms and their development in a blend of diversified musical tendencies, in such a way that they manage to be traditional and avant-garde at the same time. Their offer to hold a rhythm workshop based on the Brazilian tambourine at the Embassy has honoured us very much.

The cultural traditions that communities, groups and individuals all over the world receive from their ancestors and pass along to future generations constitute a major trove and are to be understood as part of humanity’s rich cultural heritage.

As a rhythmic instrument known worldwide, the tambourine appears in several different cultures, being played in several different ways. Used as accompaniment for gipsy dances in Eastern Europe or for Capoeira circles in Brazil, it also shows up as a protagonist of ‘Samba’, ‘Coco de Roda’ and ‘Embolada’ performances.

Such versatility makes the tambourine an extremely dynamic instrument, from the symphonic universe to the electronic music beat.

Bearing in mind the importance of the close relationship between tradition and modernity in its use, Cabruera will present at this workshop the beat of the Brazilian tambourine and its diverse rhythmic possibilities.
