This group class will focus on some of the foundational rhythms and grooves of Afro-Cuban music and the percussion instruments that play them. Mambo, Cha Cha Cha and 6/8 will be covered, in addition to the techniques required to get the proper tone and feel. Instruments include: congas, bongos, timbales, bells, guiro, chekere, etc. We will create song forms and focus on improvisation, ensemble playing and the importance of listening.
There is no experience required, and instruments will be provided. We will present a concert on Thursday, October 24 at Crescendo Music Loft to give all members an opportunity to perform in a live setting.
