DRUMMING AND RYTHM PLAYSHOP
This workshop will suit every group, and team and will be the highlight of any festival or event. Lots of games and rhythm starters. Participants learn about the instruments and the rhythm. They have a chance to express themselves freely and conduct a drum orchestra. No previous experience is needed. We provide all the drums and percussion instruments. Sometimes we use our bodies and voices to create music together. We've worked with thousands of people who had lots of fun.
No experience is necessary. We are all creative and rhythmical beings.
We belong to the family of Village Music Circle and we've trained with the best facilitators of drum circles in the world. Our mentor is Arthur Hull, who is the acclaimed grandfather of the community drum circle.
SAMOAN SASA - WAKING UP THE COMMUNITY
Surely you've heard of Haka. But did you hear about Sasa? Sasa is a traditional slap dance from Polynesian Islands. Its purpose is to make everyone awake from the dream. It is performed sitting cross-legged on the floor. The participants are performing a series of rhythmic and visual patterns to the accompaniment of a log drum. To be sitting cross-legged is to be connected to Earth. When we slap our bodies using various actions we are waking up our bodies and saying WAKE UP! Sasa is the celebration to invite all others watching to pay attention. The Sasa is an amazing experience of community in unity. All participants, sitting in rows, are synchronizing their movements to perform a stunning show. Once the group has learned the calls and moves, they will be able to create their own. Sasa dance tells a story of life, interests, and surroundings.
