Afro Cuban Music Night

The ACM is a night of drum, song and dance from batá and orisha music to rumba. It is an informal gathering where musicians, music lovers, dancers and those who would like to learn to dance can participate. PLEASE NOTE this is not an audience/performance type event, all those who attend are encouraged to take part in some small or large way depending on their experience of the traditions –this could include anything from hand clapping, singing choruses, dancing, drumming or leading the songs. 

IMPORTANT: Please drink up 
We have worked hard to try and keep this event free (obviously apart from the dance class). This is only possible if people consume drinks at the bar, so please support the event by buying drinks of some kind; they don't have to be alcoholic:)

Rumba Laboratory

This workshop is a 5-hour rumba percussion and song workshop for people who have some experience of playing percussion. The Rumba Laboratory is an ongoing project. The idea is to run a regular rehearsal ensemble, emphasising group playing and harmony singing with a view to developing a repertoire of traditional rumba to performance level. 

This event is a continuation of last month's workshop. Therefore, those wishing to attend will be asked to catch up from the previous session. The material (recordings, lyrics and notation) will be made available on booking. 

 

These workshops are not suitable for complete beginners. If you are a beginner and would like to learn batá please get in touch and we can let you know of other workshops going on.
