In the heart of rhythm is a workshop created and developed by Adriano Adewale which explores the rhythm and the creativity within each individual. The learning activies are based on Afro-Brazilian rhythms such as Samba, Ijexa and Forro, played on conventional and non-conventional instruments. Through rhythmic games, vocal and body percussion, both adults and children learn and enjoy discovering and improving their own musical skills. A fun and challenging way of learning music.
