Body Percussion takes the rhythm back to its place of origin: the body.
To experience rhythm in the flesh and bones of the body is discovering that we are walking musical instruments, always ready to sound out.
Feel the nurturing and heart-warming effects of being fully embodied.
La percussion corporelle ramène le rythme à son lieu d'origine : le corps.
Expérimenter le rythme dans la chair et les os, c'est découvrir que nous sommes des instruments de musique ambulants, toujours prêts à résonner. Sentez les effets nourissants et réconfortants d'être complètement incarné.
This is a hands-on course. Every rhythm, every melody, will be learned taking it directly into the body. Yet, instruction about music notation will be provided if a student is interested in that as well.
Courses will be a mix of training rhythmic skills (coronation and tempo) and learning of the culture behind the rhythms.
We will be experimenting with both traditional rhythms and modern approaches: the former using African and South American patterns passed down for their activating, healing, and strengthening effects on the body; the latter for developing technique and coordination.
