Fatboy Slim plays samba in Rio’s samba school rehearsal

One of the greatest phenomena of the electronic music world, the British Fatboy Slim, surrendered on Thursday to the samba of the Porto da Pedra school in Rio de Janeiro. Fatboy, who is in Brazil for a series of presentations, visited the space of the school, in Sao Goncalo, during technical rehearsal, and soon took part of the pace of the battery.

Very excited, he drew applause and praise from the community’s master Diogo Thiago with his performance. “We Fatboy with all affection and he just wanted to try our tools. It was a really cool experience, both for us and for him,” Diogo said Thiago. The artist was performing in Rio that week.
