Level 2 Afro-Cuban Drumming Course
9-Week Course: 13th March – 15th May (not including 10th April)
This course is aimed at students wanting a deeper understanding of Afro-Cuban drumming. Participants will develop essential drum tones on different types of drums, an awareness of clave as a rhythmic structure and how drum patterns interlock and a complex understanding of rumba, batá drumming including conversations and variations. We will also introduce students to palo and güiro. Participants will learn a repertoire of songs that accompany drum rhythms and develop skills for singing and playing simultaneously.
Bombo Productions offers a range of courses that cater for three levels of ability. This is a level 2 Afro-Cuban Drumming Course for those who have completed level 1 or who have some musical experience, please refer to our guide here.
