MASTER TEACHER in RESIDENCE: BATA KETU WORKSHOPS with MARK LAMSON!
In cooperation with U of A World Music Gang, Tucson High, and Batucaxe, and with support from LP (Latin Percussion)
If you are a lover of traditional Brazilian and Cuban music and song, then these workshops are for you. The community will have the opportunity to experience what Batucaxe gets to experience when they attend California Brazil Camp. If you have wondered about the level of mastery that we get to experience at camp, you will NOT want to miss Mark Lamson in action; he is brilliant at orchestrating the group into a groove that you will not forget. Please stay tuned for the SPECIFIC DATES and TIMES, and locations. Private and semi-private lessons with Mark will be available as well.
Bata Ketu is a class that demonstrates and explores the relationship between Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music. It focuses primarily on the music (both song and percussion) of the Orixas/Orishas, but also includes secular music as well, including samba, pagode, rumba, songo, and so forth. ,
A *VERY* SPECIAL NIGHT OF BRAZILIAN MUSIC: **GILBERTO GIL IN CONCERT**!!
