Traditional spanish song and percusion

 

The Course

 

 

The very traditional percussion of the Iberian Peninsula, in the hands of the people, for centuries accompanied the singing, wants to revive again in schools and musicians.

 

In this workshop are studied the technique and how to play traditional instruments, as the square tambourine, tambourines, mortar, pan, triangle, bamboo, claps, etc. Also the evolution and the origin of each instrument is also discussed, and the different types, sizes, the materials which are made of, varieties that survive or have existed in the peninsula as well the use that has been given.

 

Traditional rhythms from the Iberian Peninsula and Islands such as seguidillas, jotas, fandangos, 6/8 rhythms, corridos, etc are taught.

 

Percussion played by the person who sings has been a common tandem in the traditional music of many places around the world; in Spain has worked for dancing but also for songs and carols.

 

In short, the course’s aim is to sing and play at the same time over Spanish songs anddances.

 

A walk through our unknown heritage which will help us to better know where we come from to understand us a little bit more.

 

The final purpose of this course is to create a big percussion combo as a basis to accompany traditional songs.
