Salvador, Bahia, 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."
