The essence of Afro Cuban Rumba: the Music
Rumba Courses begin September 14th 2009.
Every Monday from 7:00pm – 9:00pm join us for Rumba Night.
These sessions will help better define the true essence of Afro-Cuban Rumba.
Congas, timbales, and bongos will be the instruments of focus. We concentrate on the basic patterns including Yambu, Guaguanco, Columbia, Son, Bolero and Guaracha. A general look in to the Yoruba culture and how its rhythms are performed on the bata will be featured.
This class is led by master drummer Joaquin Hidalgo from Cuba. Joaquin will rotate through the rhythms, mostly in sets of 5 classes or so before starting over… drop in any time.
$20 per session. Save 10% Pre-pay 15 sessions for $270.00 ($18.00 ea) Expires December 31st 2009.
