Pandeiro – Dissecting the Groove with Ami MolinelliPercussionist Ami Molinelli will discuss and demonstrate the evolution of pandeiro technique in Brazilian music. We’ll focus on the basic elements of samba and choro including swing and the tamborim ride. Because the pandeiro adapts elements of the Brazilian bass drum (surdo), shakers (ganzá) and tamborim – we will dissect the GROOVE. Please bring your own pandeiro.
Saturday, October 17, 1:00 – 3:00 pm$45 advance, $60 day of workshopAmi Molinelli
Rhythm Studiowith Keith TerryIn this informative and entertaining workshop, we will identify cultural and historical connections while exploring a variety of rhythmic systems and concepts from around the world, including polyrhythms, crosspulses, polymeters, phasing, half time/double time, additive/divisive, syncopation and more. Hands-on, no instruments needed. We will step, clap and vocalize simple patterns and rhythmic games as a way to internalize these tools, which enhance the development of time, timing, phrasing, listening skills, independence, coordination and ensemble awareness. This knowledge can then be applied to musical instruments, the voice, plus other vehicles of expression, in composition and improvisation. A useful resource for musicians, dancers and movers of all kinds, actors, DJs, beat-makers, and film editors anyone interested in deepening their skills and broadening rhythmic horizons.
