【Coming soon!】☆開催未定☆はじめてのアフロキューバン♪~キューバのパーカッションとアンサンブル~

Conga, timbales, and bongo drums are percussionists and batadoras. Monthly workshop by Naoya Masho, who is also a music player ♪

This is a workshop where you can fully feel the charm of Cuban percussion from JPC (Japan Percussion Center), which is also a sacred place for percussion instruments!

Through Afro-Cuban ensembles such as rumba and butter drums, challenge the movement of the left and right hands, which can also be polyrhythms and brain teasers. I'm sure the range of music will expand!

-What is Cuban street music "Rumba"?

Human-powered dance music that is performed to bring musical instruments to town squares and private houses and enjoy them at festivals. Call and response like a game has the fun of expanding the musical range. It is also a common language for Latin percussionists. If you have three conga, it's often a rumba session (laughs).
