Shekere: Intro into rhythmic flow

Presented by Miguel Flamini.

The Shekere is a beaded-gourd instrument played by both men and women in Africa and in many African-influenced cultures. The intricate movements of the shekere can create waves of sound and texture that can be used to drive a circle, create percussion "melodies", or even solo. Miguel primary draws from the Afro-Cuban tradition but has created much of his own style to blend with the fire circles. Many shekeres will be provided, and basic to advance technique will be demonstrated. Miguel has a multitude of introductory exercises and body movements that will help you to understand the rhythms on a physical and mental level.
