2.30pm - 5pm
This workshop is for anyone new to hand drumming or interested in finding out more about conga drumming or Latin-American rhythms.
We’ll look at basic techniques including palm/finger movements and hand shapes for producing open tones, bass tones and slap, exercises for developing tone, independence and coordination. We’ll also explore some Brazilian and Cuban rhythms, with parts for one, two and three drums, and how the individual lines fit together with bell patterns and the ‘clave’
rhythm. You’ll take away plenty of ideas after the workshop as well as notes of what is covered on the day.
