Rhythms of the World Workshop
May 15, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am MDTFree
In case of rain or other poor weather conditions the concert and workshop will be rescheduled. We will keep in touch about the new concert date. Thank you for your understanding of unpredictable Colorado weather!
In this workshop Sandra and Steve will explore different approaches to rhythm found around the world including cyclic vs. linear, polyrhythm, additive rhythm, syncopation, complex meters, etc. with engaging explanations and experiences of what these terms even mean! With a special focus on the music of Spain, the Balkan Peninsula, Sweden, and Latin America, we’ll also explore how these different approaches might be combined, or applied to classical music. Rhythm is at the heart of all music and is revealing of different attitudes about society, motion, and time. In this interactive event we will reimagine the music of “Bach as Afro-Brazilian samba,” and/or “Mozart as Balkan dance,” etc., along with performing different world music examples, and teaching the students how to “groove” in some new and “worldly” ways.
We recommend attendees bring their own instruments as there will not be instruments provided. So pull out your drums, your keyboard, your washboard or whatever you prefer to create rhythms on and come on down!
A reservation for the “Rhythms of the World” Workshop will also award you a 10% discount for tickets for the Duo Equilbrio concert!
