Creative Approach and Experiences OfferedDestination Brazil! - Performance
The music from Brazil is as vibrant as it is diverse. Luciano brings light to some of the origins of Brazil’s vast musical landscape through his repertoire of original songs and traditional rhythms.
Brazilian Percussion - Workshop
Students will learn traditional Brazilian rhythms and songs by playing different instruments such as shakers, cowbells and drums. They will explore three-part musical arrangements and discover the secrets behind the lively carnival music that permeates all of Brazil's distinctive culture. Students will gain a basic understanding of dances connected with the rhythms and songs as well as the socio-geographic context associated with them.
Carnaval Arts - Residency
In this series of five workshops, students explore dances, costume design, drumming ensemble arrangements and parading skills, culminating in a mini carnival show that could be proudly featured at any school assembly!
