Maracatu Music and Dance Workshops
Maracatu Music and Dance WorkshopsBrazilian Portuguese and Arts is excited to present a special event to bring us together with the purpose of learning more about Maracatu de Baque Virado and its rhythms, songs, history, dance and culture. Let's connect our percussion community and play some of the raw, powerful "baques" (rhythms) of this specific Brazilian culture originating in the northeastern state of Pernambuco.

A longtime "maracatuzeiro" (maracatu player) who is familiar with a number of different styles, songs and arrangements, Jonathan Rothman will be in San Diego over the weekend of Saturday, November 18th and Sunday November 19th.

The workshop with Jonathan, supported by Claudia Lyra and Maracatu Jangada, will be offered to all levels. He has a lot of material to share! With that in mind, we will make sure to find parts and instruments for those with less experience in the maracatu style (to focus basics of the rhythms). Experienced (intermediate/advanced) participants will develop technique and learn more complex phrases to fill out the arrangements we'll learn, which Jonathan will share from his journeys into Maracatu.

Singing is also a strong tool in his class! While we'll do some instrumental arrangements as well, many of the percussion arrangements for the workshop will fit within the structure of a song.

(If we have critical mass, we will aim to go to a local park and play Maracatu on Sunday afternoon in SD as well from 2-4 PM. We can discuss this on the event page here and confirm at the workshop on November 18th to make sure there are enough who want to do it.)

About the guest facilitator:
Jonathan Rothman is a passionate student of Brazilian music and culture. He has played Maracatu de Baque Virado for more than 10 years, including a 2017 summer intensive in his hometown, Toronto, where he deepened his study with visiting Brazilian teachers Pitoco de Airá, the Contra-Mestre of Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante do Recife, and Alexandre Garnizé of Rio de Janeiro's Tambores de Olokun. Jonathan started with the original Toronto group Nunca Antes (now defunct), and has played extensively with the subsequently formed Toronto groups Mar Aberto and Baque de Bamba.

Jonathan has also played with Maracatu groups in several cities in Brazil and has studied maracatu, including the styles of various nations and percussive groups, with numerous teachers and groups in Brazil and North America. He is now teaching a nine-week maracatu workshop series in Los Angeles this fall at the Brasil Brasil Cultural Centre, and he recently performed with Maracatu Pacifico in San Francisco as a guest drummer for the Dia de los Muertos parade."

Admission/Cost: $20 suggested donation.
