The Rumba Laboratory is a 5-hour Rumba percussion and song workshop for people who have some experience of playing percussion. We offer one workshop per month in London. This is an ongoing project. The idea is to run a regular rehearsal ensemble, emphasising group playing and harmony singing with a view to developing a repertoire of traditional rumba to performance level.
This event is a continuation of last month’s workshop. Therefore, those wishing to attend will be asked to catch up from the previous session. The material (recordings, lyrics and notation) will be made available on booking.
Location: Brixton SW2 2AE
29 March (Friday) (TBC; if you’re interested in coming then please let us know before you come)
Time: 11.00 am – 5.00 pm
Drum Hire: You can use our drums for free.
£40 drop-in. We haven’t increased our prices since 2011. However, that inevitable time has now sadly come so as to develop ongoing activities and continually offer workshops in small group settings.
£35 when booking 4 workshops in advance (to be completed within a six month period): sign up and pay for 4 workshops upfront for the old price of £35 per workshop (£140 in total instead of £160).
For added flexibility, participants can attend any 4 workshops within a six-month period (which will be extended should there be an odd month without a workshop, e.g. August).
However, Batá Intensive and Rumba Labs sadly cannot be combined. Each new 6-month period will re-start once all 4 workshops are attended. Unfortunately, we regret that we won’t be able to offer refunds nor carry forward workshops should the 4 sessions not be completed within the 6-month period.
10 % discount for students and low income.
