Year 8 Samba Music Performances

Year 8 Samba Music Performances

February 2nd 2017

Year 8 have been undertaking a project on Samba Music, familiar to many as Brazilian carnival music. The students work in small groups with each member playing an independent rhythm and creating a polyrhythmic effect, where many different rhythms are being played at the same time. Instructions are given through the Apito whistle and complicated textures can be achieved. The students learnt the rhythms by ear and arranged their own performances.
