Mestre Marquinho da Dona Geralda
Mestre Marquinho da Dona Geralda was born and raised into the samba in his native favela Engenho da Rainha in Rio de Janeiro. Traveling around the world as musician, spending many years as a conductor of samba schools and giving masterclasses and workshops in percussion, Mestre Marquinho has created a significant personal rhythmic style and sound.
Bateria Tijolo Quente (Copenhagen) is the creative platform for the work of Mestre Marquinho, where ideas and dreams get to life.
