Kirk Brundage & Afro-Brazilian Percussion Guide

 - THE BOOKS -

People the world over have heard "The Girl from Ipanema", and know of the famed Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. But what about the roots of Brazilian music? And what is going on the streets today? 

Brazil’s first capital, Salvador da Bahia, is often cited as the birthplace of 

samba and capoeira—and as an important stronghold of Afro-Brazilian 

spirituality. Also, Salvador's Carnaval has made the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest street party in the world.


These ground-breaking books explore the roots of Afro-Brazilian music, the innovations of modern carnaval, and provide creative applications for other musical styles. They were researched in Bahia, for over 10 years, by Kirk with many extraordinary masters.
