Intricate Rhythms, Exotic Melodies

The first step to understanding the roots of Brazilian music is understanding the percussion rhythms. This is easier said than done. Simply knowing the chords will not be enough to feel the underpinning grooves that make the music unique.

“We generally feel Brazilian music in 2/4 but playing like an authentic Brazilian involves more than just counting 1, 2, 1, 2 – you need to feel the clave and understand the percussion instruments, particularly the surdo and pandeiro. In this course, I will cover all of this and help you transform the way you play.”

In just 4 modules, you’ll become confident with Brazilian chord positions, substitutions, right-hand rhythms, variations, and other foundational techniques. You’ll gain a competent understanding of Samba, Samba De Roda, Bossa Nova, Choro and Maracatu and learn compositions from the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim and Garoto.

Tradition Becomes Accessible

Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, London-based guitarist, producer, and master multi-instrumentalist Rafael Valim lives and breathes Brazilian music. From contemporary styles to the classic sounds of Samba and Bossa Nova, Valim embraces it all. In addition to o violão – or the guitar – he is proficient in cavacho, mandolin, pandeiro, cuica, caixa, zabumba, repinique, rebolo and many other traditional instruments

Valim is the man that legendary Brazilian groups like Karametade call when they tour through London, as they know he can put together the local ex-pat backing band and lead them through the set. He’s performed at most of the iconic UK venues including Hammersmith Apollo, The O2, and Ronnie Scotts, and loves introducing the sounds of Brazil to new audiences.
