Ginga: The Brazilian Way to Groove

  • thumbnail for Jovino Santos Neto
  • In Brazil, the subtlest way to play any groove is often known as “ginga”. The word refers to the way in which a dancer moves, to the way a beautiful person walks, and to the way that music incites inner and outer motion in the listeners. The purpose of this clinic is to provide rhythmic information about Brazilian grooves in a practical and concise way, leading to the individual and collective development of “ginga” in the performance of Brazilian-based music.
