Marcello Santos

Marcello Santos, born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he had his first contacts with percussion. He is a social resident in Arte Educação, ethnomusicologist, percussion educator, samba school rhythmist (Estación Primera de Mangueira-RJ), maracatu batuquero and coordinator of the Bienal de Percusión de Ceará, in addition to being the founder of the Caravana Cultural, an NGO created to take young people off the streets, including percussion in their daily lives. We are lucky that this master of regional, traditional and ancestral rhythms is passing through Europe and we can count on him to give the course during the WIM19.
