Perform: Carnaval de Paris will give you an opportunity to perform together as an ensemble playing either surdo, tambourim, timba, repinique, caixa, ganza and agogo bells.  Make sure you are really clear about the rhythm that your group is playing so that when everyone plays together, you can keep in time with the pulse AND maintain your part.

Reminder – this song features the following signals:

Signal 1 = Everybody stop for 4 beats

Main groove = The rhythm for your instrument (check back on the Learn: Carnaval de Paris if you’re not sure)
