SAMBA WORKSHOPS for Schools with Claudio kron do BRAZIL, authentic Samba drumming / Brazilian percussion workshops with a mile stone of experience!  Claudio was born in the first capital of Brazil in the state of Bahia. Bahia was also the place that Samba music and dance was created after the influence in the arrival of African people in Brazil.

Our Samba School Workshops are tailored to accommodating KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 to all schools across Britain and abroad.  The workshops provided by us are engaging, interactive, educational and fun.  We have delivered over 1000 workshops across schools + Carnival projects in UK in the past 21 years based in UK, West Yorkshire


Using authentic afro-brazilian percussion instruments claudio kron is always ready to share his passion and full driving force of Brazilian Percussion, as well as teaching he will demonstrating how to play and use the instruments and talking in depth about my own culture and tradition.  Samba is the most popular music and culture exported from Brazil, samba is part of our daily lives.


The samba was created at sugarcanes plantations in Senzalas (Slaves houses) and Kilombos concentration of slaves in Brazil by our fellow Africans descendants.  Since the diaspora Brasil has created many different types and styles of Samba and others, the rhythms patterns for Samba will change like the accents when we speaks depending in which geographically part of Brasil you are.  Coming from Bahia where the most popular rhythms is the Samba de Roda, we have created Samba Reggae a movement for the inclusion of black people, bringing music to deprived areas and communities giving it access to people that never thought they could ever play a musical instrument and now we export it to the world. 


In my travels to Africa precisely Ghana I experience listen to some traditional music that have the some syncopation and accents as the Samba we celebrate in Brasil the rhythms in Ghana is called Kpanlogo which they use wooden hand crafted drums with a leader skin across the top pretty much as an ATABAQUE instrument from Brasil used in Candombles (Orixas) rituals and Capoeira (Brazilian Martial arts) . I also notice in South America in Dominic Republic (Merrengue) It’s a kind of Samba Reggae played back to front.  However the tempo and the mixture of Reggae and Samba are very notable as we experienced similar culture Brazil, Jamaica, Dominic Republic plus.

My closest encounter to Capoeira in Africa is an art from call Ka-Zimba with very close similarities.


Samba comes from the word Semba (Angola) which means touching bellies.  Samba music and dance is one of the most popular art form also a very important aspects of the AFRO BRAZILIAN CULTURE MOVEMENT.  The dance was created from the suffering of slaves chained by chacos and not been able to spread the feet apart so they started use the movement of reels and toes that creates the samba dance that equivalent ballet to our Brazilian people.  Where are oppression always will be rebellion.  “Let’s build a safer and free world”.  The rest is true history!


Claudio kron and his team has delivered Samba workshops for a number of schools, colleges, universities, communities, festivals, carnivals, all over the world representing the Brazilian embassy.  He will always been available to share is cultural background including music anywhere he will be invited too.
