Courses overview

Brazilian Percussion (pandeiro, caxixis, triangle, cowbell)

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles
Molière Theatre - Galerie de la Porte de Namur, 3 Square du Bastion, 1050 Bruxelles

The course

Osvaldo Hernandez has chosen the pandeiro, one of the wide range of Brazilian percussion instruments, to form the centrepiece of this course. Although it looks like a simple tambourine, the pandeiro is a versatile instrument that is found in many different styles of Brazilian music. Students will have an opportunity to learn traditional Brazilian rhythms from the north-east of Brazil as well as modern forms such as rock, funk or pop. In addition to the pandeiro, the course will tackle the caxixi (a sort of maracas), triangle and cowbells. The course will be given in a group in order to develop the energy that is so essential for percussion, as well as providing a motivating and fun atmosphere.

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles, was born in Ixmiquilpan in the state of Hidalgo in Mexico.

As from the age of 19, he has been travelling and researching traditional percussion styles from America’s indigenous people, descendents of African slaves and European colonists. His mix and match of all different kind of styles and cultures made him into a highly versatile percussionist. This mixture of styles can also be seen in the different projects in which he participates such as “Deep Forest”, “Ialma”, “Deep Forest”, “Carlos Diaz”, “Arax” and “Karim Baggili”.
