(We are taking names for a reserve list so please let us know if you are interested in attending)

Ilú Batá is an intensive residential workshops for existing players to further their knowledge and skills in Cuban batá drumming under the guidance of three highly experienced tutors.

These are specially designed to work both as stand-alone workshops or as part of an on-going annual series. Each workshop has its own unique content and can also cater for players who have different levels of knowledge and ability.

Daytime sessions will focus on learning new material. Evening sessions will be set aside for students to play through what they’ve learned during the day in a setting created to give participants a chance to engage in an informal environment that is closer to a Cuban tambor or rumba.

5th-8th November 2020

We’ll be working on a number of Bata toques with an in-depth study of the language for each drum. The study will include learning long sequences of songs that require linking several different toques together.

If you have sets of batá and would like to bring them please let us know. If you’d like to borrow instruments from OVM for the workshop please ring us and reserve it well in advance.
