Workshop - Ritmos del Corazón (Heart Rhythms)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The heart beats constantly while we're alive but how often do we think of it as the music inside our bodies? The heart is like a drum -- a muscle that beats constantly. It's the first sound we hear inside the womb -- our mother's heartbeat (if not our own).  Drumming in a community scenario (as in a drum circle) can be incredibly therapeutic and generate extraordinary vitality.

Enjoy a lively session with local Afro-Cuban funk band PALO! drummers Raymer Olalde and Philbert Armenteros, who will introduce us to amazing Afro-Latin rhythms such as the "cha cha cha" and if we have time, the rumba and guaguancó.

Along with moderator Maria de los Angeles, they will lead a session on rhythm and participants will get to "perform" themselves with little egg shaker maracas. Raymer and some volunteers will help with the dance moves. No music experience required. Come and enjoy!

Litana Somoano, a local drum circle player/dancer, will also assist.
