Instructor: Noah Mosgofian
Skill level: beginning / intermediate
Run Time: 5:49
Samba is one of the world's most popular rhythms for dancers and drummer alike. Learn to play the fundamental samba pattern for timbal in this lesson with Noah Mosgofian. Created in Bahia, Brazil, the Timbal (pronounced chim-bao) is Brazil's answer to the djembe. Its explosive sounds, light weight and energizing rhythms have made it a popular addition to the samba lineup. In this video you'll learn an authentic fundamental samba pattern. This universal pattern can be played on timbal, djembe, congas, or ashiko, in small bands, backyard sambas, drum circles, and carnaval baterias alike. It's also the foundation for more advanced Afro-Samba patterns, so this is the ideal place to start your samba hand-drumming journey. The instruction is slow and thorough, and it includes on screen transcriptions, detailed explanations, and over-the-shoulder camera angles.
