BATA KETU WORKSHOPS with MARK LAMSON!
COMING DECEMBER 20 -22!
A journey to BRAZIL and CUBA - dance and drum!
Join us as we welcome MARK LAMSON (www.marklamson.com) to Tucson!
We will be offering both DANCE and DRUM classes in the style of BATA KETU.
BATA KETU - Conceived as a fusion and interplay of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazilian folkloric music, Mark (and Michael Spiro) produced the CD in 1996, and it is hailed around the world as being a landmark recording. It is registered with the Smithsonian Institute and has received funding from the Rockefeller Institute.
You will have the opportunity to explore the relationship of the rhythms of the African Diaspora that came to both Brazil and Cuba, as well as the movement!
No experience necessary!
