This one day workshop will explore how the rhythms of Candomblé (Nação Ketu) have influenced the Bloco’s of Salvador Bahia.
By exploring traditional phrasing and rhythms used in the Candomblé Ketu tradition we will develop a new and unique original arrangement. The composition will include unison breaks and solo phrasing for individual instrumental sections. We will also explore the use of rhythmic phrasing within the arrangement encouraging conversation between different sections following the cycle of traditional songs.
This workshop is suitable for all levels of ability from beginner to advanced percussionists with solo phrasing offered for more competent players.
This is a great opportunity to explore a little deeper the elements that make up Brazilian percussion arrangements. As well as learning new rhythms, breaks and techniques, we will take a closer look at how these percussion arrangements have developed over time and their relationship with rhythmic ancestors.
