African Drumming comes to Leongatha

 

LEONGATHA Community House is delighted to host a workshop featuring performers from the acclaimed Melbourne-based ensemble, African Drumming.

The ensemble completes its 2016 Gippsland tour in Leongatha this Friday, October 14 with this interactive workshop for children aged 8-13 years.

Traditional African percussion instruments, including Djembe drums, combine with bass drums and shakers to create a truly exciting and uplifting sound rhythm.

Janie, Events Coordinator with African Drumming, says “We work on creating a traditional African percussion ensemble. Starting with some cultural and musical history, we then get to know the instruments and how to play them with correct technique. We have a brief warm up before getting into the polyrhythmic grooves that define West African Music.”

The workshop is scheduled for 4.00pm on Friday, October 14 at Leongatha Community House at 16 Bruce Street Leongatha.  Cost is $25 per person, and bookings can be made by phoning 5662 3962.

Drumming fun: this interactive workshop is for children aged 8-13 years.
