Jakub Škrha Biography

Jakub Škrha is a percussionist focusing mainly on Brazilian rhythms and samba. For a year he had lived in Rio de Janeiro, the capital of samba, where he learned rhythms and percussion play with the best Brazilian teachers.

As one of few Europeans and as a sole Czech citizen, he was part of the biggest and most famous carnivals in the world the Rio de Janeiro Carnival. For two consecutive years, he had performed in the bateria (drum orchestra) of samba school Unidos do Viradouro and one year he played with samba school Academicos do Cubango.

Apart from playing and experiencing the inner processes of samba schools in Rio, Jakub studied rhythms and percussion at “Maracatu Brasil – Ritmos Brasileiros e Universais” and at “Escola Portatil da Música – Casa do Choro”. He learned from leading Brazilian percussionists such as Bernardo Aguiar, Gabriel Policarpo, Fabricio Reis, Marcus Suzano, Boka Reis, Waguinho do Repique, Dofono de Omolu, Luiz Augusto, Alexandr Garnizé, Iran Silva and others.

His practice allowed him to found a new samba school called Escola de Samba Brno and to organize samba workshops. He also leads a modern drum show Ritmo Factory combining the power of exotic rhythms with modern sound of electronic dance music.

In his home country of the Czech Republic, he had performed at many concerts and drum shows. He cooperated with prominent Czech musicians like singer Anna K, who he accompanied on percussions during the summer tour of well know Czech festivals in 2017 and 2018. He participated in the Czech House opening during Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic Games in 2016. For years, he played in drum band TamTam Batucada of Miloš Vacík (for example on Expo 2015 in Milan, Italy). And last but not least he played at the opening ceremony of UEFA finals between Bayern Munich and Chelsea F.C. in Prague´s Eden (2013).
