Known from the Rio Carnaval, batucada is loved for its samba energy, the spectacular display of a large group of percussionists, and the joy of playing, for which no professional instrumental skills are needed. All instruments, including surdos (bass drums), caixas (snare drums), agogô (bells), chocalho, tamborim, repinique, and rattles are meant to be played in motion. During our 90-minute meetings with Miki Wielecki, the easy rhythms played by the sections will be transformed into impressive pieces to be performed at the end. Instruments will be available for up to 35 people.
