Miamibloco Mondays invites Salgueiro’s Bateria Furiosa Mestres Gustavo & Guilherme Oliveira
Miami Beach Bandshell
September 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Miamibloco is proud to welcome Mestres Guilherme and Gustavo Oliveira of G.R.E.S. Acadêmicos do Salgueiro, 9x champion of Rio de Janeiro’s carnaval parade competition. Born and raised in the Tijuca neighborhood of Rio, the brothers have spent their entire lives as part of the Salgueiro samba school and in 2019 were named Mestres of the school’s drum section, Bateria Furiosa. Salgueiro has excelled under their leadership, and year after year they garner perfect scores from judges for their creative bossas and thunderous groove.
Every other Monday from September 19th to December 12th Miamibloco opens its doors to share an experiential taste of Afrobrazilian percussion with our community. We’ll learn about a specific rhythm and co-reate an arrangement within the hour.
The inaugural Miamibloco Monday community workshop will be led by the Mestres of Bateria Furiosa, and Miamibloco’s director Brian Potts from 6-7pm. Open to all levels of experience, and instruments are included. After the workshop, grab a drink and dance to live Samba with the Miamibloco Bateria Rehearsal from 7-9pm.
Tickets will be $5 more at the door.
Beverages are available for purchase during the workshop. The Bandshell is an open air covered venue, all programs are rain or shine. Your ticket, once purchased, is non-refundable. Any questions? firstname.lastname@example.org
