In the first we learn about the basics of Lithuanian Sutartines - beautiful 2nd based simple folk so...

We are Music

The day starts with a workshop on the Pandeiro - the great and unique Brazilian percussion instrument. I have been learning in Cabelo Seco from Evany and now it clicks and I realise that the left hand rhythmic rocking is the crucial element. Some lovely songs and a great chat with Luis - a percuss...

Chilean Bagpipes end the day

Early morning waking and off to the beach for a swim. My weeks of regular pool swimming in the UK pay off as I swim back and forth in the swell. Fantastic start to what turns out to be a day of mixed moods. I have my workshop to prepare for 4pm and as usual it worries me. I feel I am representing th...

Late arrival into Salvador and the fast speeding taxi takes me into the city along cleaned up highways that will have projected a 'polished' Brazil to the world cup crowds and press. The hotel is on the seafront at the north end by a beach where I swam with Kathryn last year when we came to research...
