Body Music Workshop
Chorus Room -- 1:00pm to 2:00pm Sunday April 25 T
Throughout history, and around the world, there have been various forms of body music, from clapping or stomping your feet to vocalizing rhythms, from playing basic or improvised rhythms to coordinated group rhythmic patterns. In this workshop we will learn some simple body music patterns, first learning about the African American tradition of patting juba, and then we’ll look at some percussion patterns from Ghana, learning various ways to vocalize and play them with body percussion. This workshop is open to all levels of ability.
