Omi Percussion Workshop

July workshop was led by samba teams, Despertador and Feijão Preto from Osaka and Kobe which participate in the Asakusa Samba Carnival every year. Some kids from Colegio Santana immediately responded to the rhythm and started to dance.

Some people were totally new to the samba rhythm. But after working in groups for each instrument, we played together again to discover that we are together in samba!!! It was miraculous.

A principal of Colegio Santana, Kenko Nakata is inviting as all to join them to perform samba at the Kusatsu Multicultural Festival in September!

Next workshop will be held on
