Brincadeira as a company traces a parallel path to the percussion group from its beginnings, through various Workshops.

The first results didn't took long to arrive, and in 2005 we began the first Batucada workshop at the Centre Cívic La Bàscula .

Since 2009 we have reached various Schools in Barcelona as an Extracurricular activity. As a result of this we started a work not only individual, but accompanied by various families, with the aim of creating a playful activity, always using music and movement as the main tool.

In 2016, when the company became professional, a team of workshops instructors was created with the objective  of reaching a certain growth as a project, giving Brincadeira a broader meaning and working on social inclusion  at the same time through percussion.

Over the years, the Workshops have evolved, reaching various groups (children, youth, families...). After working musically and educationally in different schools, socio-cultural projects, and neighborhoods of Barcelona, all these experiences lead to the development of our own working methodology, culminating, in 2020, with the EDUCATIONAL PROJECT.

The final objective is to try to achieve a more egalitarian society, because since the moment that a group of people start to play an instrument together, the language evolves and the social differences vanish.

Brincadeira, in its essence, aims to spread the value and meaning that is generated when people work with passion and enthusiasm and, at the same time, fight for reality.
