“Music has the power to transport us to another time and place. The alchemy of sound flows as music in life, I seek harmony within that flow. Discovering ways of encapsulating vital energies into existence through sound, serving the purpose of music as a bridge between the spiritual and physical realms.”
Workshop : Rhythm Alchemy - An introduction to Middle Eastern Rhythms
Join us as we go on a rhythmic journey through the Middle East. Three popular Middle Eastern Rhythms will be our mantras for the session, participants will learn about playing technique, dynamic changes in music as well as gaining awareness of space and silence.
This workshop is an opportunity for participants to learn about rhythm in many different ways, whether you play a musical instrument or are beginning to learn. We will stimulate a sensorial awareness of rhythm through our body, our ears, and our voice, allowing the intelligence of our body to be guided by the pulsing beats of ancient middle eastern rhythms.
