Internationally acclaimed percussionist Tom Teasley is the 2016 World Percussionist of the Year by Drum! magazine, has won numerous Helen Hayes Awards and was the WAMA awardee for “World Music Instrumentalist” five years straight.
Guests will be invited to explore their new skills to join Tom, either drumming, dancing or observe as he plays rhythms from Africa, Cuba, India, the Middle-East and Brazil in an interactive dance and drumming-happening event.
Through the use of vocalizations and stepping participants will develop a greater rhythmic awareness. Tom will also demonstrate some basic drum technique development. Beginners and experienced drummers are welcome to attend. If you have a drum please bring it. There will be some drums and other percussion devices for those without instruments. The program will culminate with a multi-cultural, ancient-to-futuristic jam session.
Don’t miss this fun and educational community-building program that celebrates global connections through rhythm!
