Congolese Drumming Class with Master Thobos Lubamba!

Congolese Master Drummer Thobos Lubamba provides us an opportunity to study traditional central African rhythms, very different from West African styles in both instrumentation and structure! Some traditional instruments will be even available for class use.

Thobos is one of the most knowledgeable individuals alive with regard to Congolese rhythm! He was the director of the percussion group at the Conservatory in Kinshasa (capital of the DCR) during the period when the traditional rhythms were being studied and preserved, and was member of the groups that took these rhythms to their next evolutionary phase! It is an UNREAL opportunity to study with him!

Thobos will be doing a new rhythm each month, from basic accompaniments to full arrangements, and covering all traditional instrumentation!

Fee: $15.00
