Cuban Percussion Workshops
The Axis Cuban Percussion Workshops will start again in Spring 2014... Watch this space!
Dates: To be announced!
The Axis Percussion Trio run workshops in all aspects of Cuban Percussion. These focus on playing conga drums and bata in traditional Cuban styles. The workshops build on material covered in previous sessions so while newcomers are more than welcome all participants should have experience at playing congas or a firm grounding in drumming or hand percussion.
Aspects of Cuban percussion that are regularly covered include:
Making the correct sounds on the drums
Warm up rituals
Rumba Guaguanco, Columbia and Yambu
Conga de comparsa
Participants are given scores of material covered at the end of each session and will be expected to practice the material between sessions.
