Event Archive - BALAFON WORKSHOPS:

Wed. March 11th 2015 6:30PM - 8PM @  UVic Senate Chambers (All Ages) 6:30PM - 8PM
Presented by: Drum Victoria
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11
6:30 PM - WORKSHOP 1 - "LAMOGOYA"
8:00 PM - WORKSHOP 2 - "JIRIBA"

African xylophones have a beautiful resonance. Called "Balafon", these wooden instruments have gourd resonators that provide amplification.

You will learn easy to-play patterns that also fit well with drum ensembles. Class hand outs with notation are provided.Colour stickers are on each key to help us find the notes.

There are two different workshops - each one is a separate rhythm. You can take one, or the other, or both. The different workshops are not sequential so you can come at 8 pm without having taken the 6:30 and vice versa.

You are also welcome to bring an audio recording device to tape the workshop for your own reference.

Cost is $29.99 per workshop, or take both for just $40

The workshop are will be held at the UVic Senate Chambers. The classroom is B016, in the lower level. There are signs indicating which way to go once you arrive in the School of Music. You can arrive a few of minutes early to get set up.
