***No previous singing or choir experience necessary***
Online Course: Tuesday 27th April – 1st June
Coro de Clave Weekender: 16th – 18th of July
Cuban Roots Harmony Choir
Coro de Clave is the name given to the group singing which proliferated in the black communities of western Cuba from the last part of the 1800s until around 1920. They were mobile ensembles, often amassing over 100 members and would compete with other neighbouring groups. Bombo Productions has revived and transferred this beautiful idea of community singing to this century and expanded the repertoire to include other Cuban-based styles.
In order to adapt to the COVID restrictions, we’ve taken the choir online. we meet every week. Come and join us! We send a range of course materials including backing tracks to facilitate your learning, practice and enjoyment.
We will work on the existing repertoire and some new material to keep our community musically and socially connected. If you are interested in joining for the first time, once you have signed up we will send you recordings of all the parts. If after the first session you feel the choir is not for you, we’ll refund you the remaining weeks’ money.
Tuesdays: 27th April – 1st June 6.30 – 8.00 GMT
Price: Standard £60 Conc £35 (See below)
