Programme Notes / Performance Details :Rudis Batuque is a samba reggae groove from Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. It can have as few as 10 players and as many as 50 or more. It is designed to be a finale of any program engaging the audience in dancing and singing with the performers. The written parts of simple enough to incorporate middle school students, but also allow for improvised solo sections that may enhance the skills of the most virtuosic performers. The piece can be taught quickly and can bring many different age groups and ability levels together. You may substitute instruments other than C instruments with some simple transcribing skills. Numerous drum substitutions may be made and are suggestions in the case that Brazilian drums are not available.
