Bata Drumming Class with Virginia Lopez
10am - 11:30am
Cost is $20

At least six months of hand drum study and knowledge of typical 6/8 bell patterns or clave are recommended, but not required, for this class.
The batá drums have their own hand technique (similar to congas and bongo, but also different) and require the constant development of listening skills. Students at a variety of levels are welcome: beginners will have a crash course in the bata; intermediates can try a drum or part they haven't played before; advanced players can assist in demonstration.

Please bring bata drums (only bata, no other type of drum) and maracas (or a similar type of shaker with a handle and a clean action/sound; caxixi, for example, are not recommended because the sound is too diffuse). Some drums will be provided, and a sufficient amount of playing time will be guaranteed to all.

En Inglés:
The bata drums salute and praise the revered forces of nature known as Orisha, as well as ancestor spirits, and are part of a living spiritual tradition and practice in Cuba.
We will send you the exact address where class in offered in the Hawthorne SE area, near Cesar E. Chávez once you enroll in class.

En Español:
Los tambores Batá se tocan para saludar y cantale a las manifestaciones de la naturaleza. El mar, el rio, el viento, la tierra...
Tenemos 6 tambores que se pueden usas durante la clase, pero traiga su tambor batá si tiene esos tambores.  
La dirección de la clase se la mandamos una vez que ya usted se haya registrado en la clase.  Llame al 503-720-8275 si tiene alguna pregunta.
