We like to Samba, Samba, Samba! Today, 1st July 2014, Adam from Nottingham School of Samba came and helped us to experience what it would be like at carnival. It was an astonishing lesson- surprisingly, he even taught us how people walk in Brazil (you will have to ask us to show you!). We started off with clapping, then he taught us the different rhythms used in Samba, which we then combined to make a song. With a little bit of encouragement from Adam, we mastered the Samba rhythms and turned out to be one of the best Samba bands he has ever taught! Interesting Fact: Africans brought the music (what is now known as Samba) to Brazil where they were kept as slaves.
The Grand Finale!
