BishBashBosh run amazing samba drumming workshops! Learn to become part of a powerful percussion team, playing authentic samba reggae from the streets of Salvador da Bahia in Brazil. No experience necessary - just enthusiasm, energy and the desire to learn how to play this fun and funky music.

A BishBashBosh workshop is amazing fun!

We like to say that youre going to take a bus to Brazil, to the city of Salvador in the state of Bahia, the home of samba reggae……..

First start the engine…..

It bursts into life - we play a loud rumble as everyone feels the power of the samba instruments.

We call everyone to jump on the bus….

We learn how to do exciting call and response breaks to tell everyone were about to leave.

The engine gets going….

The heavy bass drums (surdos) start their steady beat - it looks easy but theyre in charge of the time. Can they keep everyones playing together?

Our bus driver (workshop leader) gradually gets the other instruments to join in. As everyone realises that their playing is helping to hold the rickety old bus together, they all smile its a great feeling when the rhythm locks and everyone is part of a team producing a vibrant, powerful sound.

We learn some breaks….

We have a few stops and starts dramatic breaks which are a bit like the call and response breaks at the beginning.

We arrive in Salvador….

We play a whole rhythm from start to finish, complete with breaks and following the bus drivers hand signals!

Its an amazing feeling knowing youve just learnt an authentic samba rhythm from the streets of Salvador!
