Bombo Productions is very excited to announce the launch of a new community choir, Coro de Clave.
Coro de Clave draws on a 19th-century Cuban tradition where large groups of singers sang repertoires of rumbas accompanied by percussion. These sessions are open to everyone. Not sure what to expect? Come and participate in our taster session on the 9th October. (This workshop is then free to those who decide to sign up for the course).
Course leaders Vicky Jassey and David Pattman
Each session will be divided into three sections:
Practical rhythm and voice exercises; that aims to develop an understanding of clave (the asymmetrical timeline that underpins Cuban music) and singing in contra time.
Repertoire; that builds on learning a body of songs from the Cuban rumba tradition.
Harmony; we will work on three and four-part vocal harmonies.
