Introductory Batá Course  – Term 3

20th November – 15th Jan 2019


Bombo Productions is delighted to announce a new introductory batá course. The sacred batá drums were brought over to Cuba from Nigerian during the Trans Atlantic slave trade where they have found a place at the very heart of Cuban culture. Historically they were solely used for religious purposes to praise and honor the Yoruba deities called Oricha. Over the last century, however, they have also increasingly been used for artistic musical projects. Batá music comprises of a vast canon of poly-rhythms interwoven between the three drums along with beautiful call and answer songs.
This 7-week course is a preparatory course that introduces the main musical components of batá music, their technique, sequences and drum language (literally where the drums converse with each other).

We also offer an introductory rumba course on the same dates from 8.00 – 9.30 and offer a discount if you book both courses together. For more information on this course visit Introductory Rumba Course.
