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.
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.
Timing; we will develop an understanding of clave and vocal rumba phrasing.
