Monday, January 29, 2018 - 7 - 9pm at the Drew School in San Francisco, Amateur Music Network presents Sandy's "Canta Brasil" workshop
Open to SINGERS of all ages, all voice types, and all levels of experience.
This workshop will explore Brazilian vocal music in the bossa nova and samba traditions. We will explore the roots of Brazilian popular music, including rhythmic grooves, phrasing, vocal percussion and Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation. After a brief history of the musical and cultural elements that led to the Bossa Nova era (with listening examples), we will learn 2-3 songs.
We will also explore the musical details that will help bossa novas sound Brazilian, and how to integrate the authentic Brazilian feel into jazz repertoire.
