The sounds of the Brazilian carnival echoed around Sibford School recently when pupils in Years 5 & 6 demonstrated their newly-found skills as Sambistas.
Cyro Zuzi, of London-based Bish Bash Bosh, conducted two workshops demonstrating the art of samba reggae, a style of samba from the north-east of Brazil.
The youngsters then put their new art to the test by performing a short concert.
Rachel Bee, Junior School Music Teacher, said: “Not only were the workshops great fun but they were also excellent for co-ordination, watching and listening skills and encouraging team work … each individual instrument plays a simple rhythm but their combined sound was terrific.”
Bish Bash Bosh operates Brazilian samba drumming workshops for children and adults across London and throughout the south-east.
