The berimbau (music bow) is one of the oldest instruments known to humankind; a simple instrument made of a wooden bow, a gourd and a string, and a stick to strike against the string to produce the distinctive deep resonant sound. In this course we are going to explore the soundscapes of the African diaspora via the berimbau, the music bow imported to Brazil via the slave trade, best known for its use in the capoeira martial arts dance. The sessions will be relaxed and hands-on and will focus mainly on the music of capoeira. Small doses of African history and Portuguese language will be also included in the sessions. The berimbao is for everyone - come and play! With Cesar Cuyami Mesari
