Music has been on a long journey and it started with the hands and the voice. In Global Rhythms we will explore music through hand drumming, specifically the drumming techniques and rhythms of West-Arica and the fusion of Latin and African rhythms that became the backbone of Afro-Cuban music. We will develop and solidify hand drumming  technique for Djembe and Conga, while also learning the essential patterns, 12/8, Tumbao and Clave. These provide the launching pad for a deeper exploration of traditional rhythms out of West Africa.
*Students are encouraged to bring their own instruments/drums if they have them.
