Janderson „Afro“ dos Santos

Brasilian Percussion

Born and raised in Salvador da Bahia, Janderson Afro beat the drum for the renowned Afro-Blocos Olodum, Timbalada and Muzenza. At the young age of sixteen, he already started to direct the youth group Projeto Axé. At twenty-one, he went to Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais) in order to create an Afro Dance group with a dancer friend.

Since 2010, he has been living in Munich, working as percussion teacher, and playing in several bands. For the first time, he offers the workshop “Brazilian Percussion” this year. He says about himself: “My heart is beating in Afro-Brazilian rhythms that I want to convey today in my courses and workshops to people of all nations.”

Additional to his Percussion workshop, he will still be accompanying the workshops of Lécio Leal.
