Drummer, Percussionist & Educator
About the instructor
When Scott Kettner looks at a map, he sees a direct line that connects the rivers of northeastern Brazil to the parishes of New Orleans and the streets of Brooklyn. A master percussionist, bandleader, producer and songwriter, Kettner is the guiding force behind Nation Beat, a band whose teeming, vibrant rhythms find common ground in the primal maracatu rhythm of Brazil’s northeastern region, the Big Easy’s funky, hypnotic second-line and strolling Mardi Gras Indians, and the unfettered freedom of big-city downtown jazz.
This course is for weekly Maracatu New York members to follow class material and supplement their practice routine. This course is also for anyone planning to join us for the 2017 NYC Halloween events. Most of the Halloween material will be posted here.
