Totó la Momposina

Totó la Momposina’s entire life has been dedicated to representing the music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline. As a child, the conflict of La Violencia forced her family to flee their home and move to Bogotá. Totó emerged as a promising singer in the 1950s and formed her own band in the 1960s. She began touring internationally a decade later and cemented her global fame in the 1990s with a WOMAD tour across three continents, the release of La Candela Viva, and the many international shows and recordings that followed.

Totó continues to work tirelessly to promote the music of her homeland, driven by passion and the simple joy of performance. She has received the Latin Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the WOMEX Lifetime Achievement Award. Her latest album, Tambolero, is a re-creation of La Candela Viva.

Contemporânea Percussion is the world's most traditional manufacturer of Brazilian instruments. Roberto Guariglia, its president and director, will visit Berklee to discuss the various aspects of his company. Founded by Miguel Fasanely in 1954, Contemporânea specializes in Brazilian percussion instruments and has been at the forefront of the industry. They have shared their creativity and the music of the Brazilian culture worldwide for over 60 years. Besides samba and batucada, the production lines also follow the drumming instrumentation for baiao, maracatu, samba reggae, axe, and capoeira, and all heads and accessories for all of these styles.

Dana Monteiro will follow Guariglia, conducting a master class about samba and batucada as an educational and integrating tool. Monteiro is a proud New York City public school teacher with 13 years of experience, 12 spent at the Frederick Douglass Academy. He has a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from New York University, a Master of Arts in Music Education from Teachers College at Columbia University, and is currently a doctoral candidate in music education at Boston University. Originally a classical trumpet player, his interest in Brazilian music began on a trip to Rio de Janeiro, where he was brought by local musicians to the Vila Isabel Samba School and heard his first bateria. Since that first visit, Monteiro has made 20 study-related trips to Brazil in addition to visits to samba schools and community music ensembles in London, Tokyo, Chicago, Argentina, and the Cape Verde Islands, among other places, to study local musical practices and the various methods by which music is taught. Monteiro has been on panels and/or presented at the Seventh International Symposium of the Sociology of Music Education, the annual meeting of the Society for Ethnomusicology, and the Teaching World Musics Symposium. In 2015, he was named Outstanding Educator of the Year by Education Update
