The aim of this workshop is to introduce students to the world of Latin and African-Cuban percussion, so that they can further study Latin music after completing it. We will study rhythmic patterns that are typical of the instruments used in Latin percussion (namely conga, bongo drum, timpani, maraca, cajón box drum, and some others), and in African-Cuban percussive folklore (son, mambo, songo, guaguanco, plena, etc.).
This workshop will provide students with the basic knowledge they need to undertake a more advanced course to start training as professional musicians/percussionists.
