Bixiga 70 Bnnr



Moreton Bay Stage

This percussion workshop looks at the rhythms that are part of the range studied and worked within the band; based on Afro-Brazilian rhythms, especially Candomblé, Ketu and Nagô, as well as popular manifestations such as Maracatu, Jongo, Caboclinho, Maracatu Rural, Samba, Côco, Baião, and several Brazilian rhythms and the African West Coast, which is the Mandingo culture, of Malinke rhythms. Every rhythmic part of the band is very structured in this; and the workshop consists of choosing rhythmic cells from Bixiga 70 songs and explaining where they came from and how the group translates the traditional rhythms into their compositions.
