Samba Pack 2

Brazilian drummer and samba master Kiko Freitas presents a second pack of authentic samba grooves.

In this pack, Brazilian master Kiko Freitas continues his look at samba grooves. Bringing the authenticity of a native Brazilian, Kiko presents several grooves that capture the essence of samba for the drumset using the actual patterns, rhythms and feel from the folkloric style.

These groove variations present unique technical and coordination challenges, yet (when played correctly) have a funky, “dirty,” authentic sound and an infectious feel.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  • Batucada Groove
  • Putting the Batucada Together
  • Another Samba Groove
  • Bossa Nova/Jazz-based Samba Groove
  • Adding Bass Drum Doubles
