Intuitive drumming workshop
All who are eager to express themselves and connect through playing instruments, voice and movement will have the opportunity to join the “intuitive percussion” workshop once again this year. During every workshop you will learn skills required to freely, but responsibly create music in a group. Later on, during the jam sessions, this creative music workshop will inspire you to explore your own musical needs and will help you to free yourselves and enjoy the moment. Previous experiences are of no importance and a number of instruments will be available at the workshop. The jams at last year’s workshop consisted in a wide range from completely repetitive, shaman-like drumming, to experimental, chaotic music without rhythm and tempo. The workshop will be held from the 18th to the 21st July from 7 PM till 9 PM. You can register on-site.
