Percussion and signing, man’s first form of musical expression, was perhaps motivated by our desire to imitate and control the rhythms of life, nature, the planets and beyond. The folk music of Latin America in general has rooted in its rhythms the influence of the African slaves who forcibly arrived to this part of the world during the Colonial era. Over time, these rhythms mixed with those brought by the Europeans as well as the indigenous cultures. The result is a grand spectrum of rhythms, some beautiful and uplifting, others are rebellious and prepare warriors for battle. In the region of the Río de la Plata in Uruguay and Argentina, Candombe and Milonga music are fruit of this mixture and would later give origin to Tango.
In our percussion workshop, we will explore the amazing potential of African-latinamerican drums and discover the energy and happiness that is brought collectively through this music, just as it was in the origins for our ancestors since the beginning of humanity.
