Who would have thought that Indian curry, Brazilian Samba and a Yorkshire man would be the mix to enable young people to learn to play music!
Tom Ashe, a musician from England, works with young people at the To Ligado project in Santa Teresa, helping them to participate in the the rich musical traditions of Brazil.
To help finance the purchase of instruments Tom runs a curry club once a week. So the next time that you are Rio and you fancy a curry then do make your way to Tom’s place for a night of Indian curry and Brazilian Samba served up by a hairy Yorkshire man!
