What we're about
We decided to change the name of this meetup, to better reflect the changes that have developed. Now we have Paul who is teaching us African and Afro-Cuban ensemble rhythms. We still meet on Monday evenings from 7 to 10 pm and enjoy playing and socializing while raising up our vibrations and discharging negativity....
A note from Paul: Join us for an adventure in traditional African and Afro-Cuban ensemble rhythms for Djembe, Conga, Ashiko, Djundjun and more. Step by step we will break down the phrasing and concepts of clavé, bell and drum patterns as we perfect our timing and techniques for playing traditional style hand drums. Together we will interlock multipart rhythms, creating a musical dialogue, incorporating breaks and break phrases and even have some fun with soloing. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or experienced drummer, come out on Monday nights and discover your voice on the drum!
