Be a Drummer for a Day With Batalá Washington

July 27, 2019 at 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

What began more than 20 years ago as a single Afro-Brazilian performance group has grown into an international Batalá community with some 30 bands around the world. The DC chapter, an all-female group, hosts this annual celebration where attendees can learn how to play its four types of drums: surdo (the heartbeat), dobra (the melody), repique (“the caller”), and caixa (the “white noise” snare). $5 suggested donation.
