THE CUMBIA DRUMMING CIRCLE
This workshop will be an introduction to CUMBIA, the queen of the afro-colombian rhythms.
The first part of the workshop will concentrate in learning to warm up properly and learn technique exercises that we will later apply on the drums. Do not worry....this will be fun!!!
Second part will be all about learning the beats!! on the tambor Alegre (Joyful drum), llamador (Caller), Tambora ( two headed drum, war drum) Maracas, and we will do some chanting to accompany our drumming vibrations. If you are adventurous enough we can do some dancing as well, like in the old times.. around the drums and with candles!!
After the drumming there will be a 15 minute guided visualisation meditation, with an opportunity to release and transmute any negative energy, making way for a strong heart centered connection with our Higher Self.
We will play, drum, sing and dance!!
All levels welcome
