Samba – Rhinegold Publishing



Samba is a fun, energetic and highly rhythmic genre that is closely associated with the Rio carnival in Brazil (dubbed by some the greatest party on earth).

It’s primarily a percussive style of music that will very much test your students’ listening and ensemble skills, and the main part of this resource is dedicated to learning some typical samba rhythms and then thinking about how they could be structured into a whole-class piece.

We also suggest a couple of composition projects, one of which focuses on creating a percussive piece of performance samba, and the other that looks at writing a samba song with a harmonic accompaniment.
