Marcus Santos, Daniel D’Errico, and Sandro Scoccia, director of performance technology at Berklee, present a clinic on the sacred rhythms of Candomblé and how they made their way into folkloric music. All Brazilian music can trace its origins to the melding of European, African, and Native American traditions. This event focuses on the African tradition rooted in West African religions (Candomblé), and how this tradition, still very present in Brazil, continues to influence the general development of Brazilian music.
