This weekend aims to provide an insight into some of the connections, similarities and differences between the music of the Orishas in Cuba and Brazil. It will establish strong building blocks to aid continued study of the ritual praise rhythms that have developed independently in both countries. Each rhythm will be built in relation to clave and the function of each drum of the ensemble. The role and voice of the speaking drum in many of its different forms, rum, caja, iya, yanofo, will be explained and examples of phrases and conversations given. Songs will also be taught for each of the praise rhythms and we will spend time strengthening the familiarity and ability with singing and playing at the same time.
