Afro-Brazilian Percussion Guide (Introduction)
by Kirk Brundage
Salvador da Bahia in the North-east of Brazil is an important cradle of Afro-Brazilian culture and home to musical styles that form the bedrock of much of today's popular sounds. In this book, author Kirk Brundage offers a succinct yet comprehensive overview of the primary styles, from sacred to contemporary, providing historical context of the music and practical information on playing the rhythms.
"Afro-Brazilian Percussion Guide contains a huge amount of information and would be of great value to high school and university instructors interested in starting Brazilian Percussion ensembles."
