Intermediate/ Advanced Drum: Adowa (Ghana) WITH ANGELA SCHARFENBERGER

This class will meet in person on Tuesdays from 4:30 - 5:30 pm on April 11, 18, 25, and May 2.

Location: Chapel St Philip Neri, 236 Woodbine St, Louisville, KY 40208.

This class will focus on Adowa, a complex rhythm from the Akan people of Ghana. If there is time, we will also learn a few songs, singing in the most common language in Ghana, Twi/ Akan.  Adowa consists of a series of 10 lead hand drum parts which interface in a complex polyrhythmic call and response. 

A Kpanlogo, conga, or djembe drum can all be used for the lead parts. 

Prerequisite: It is recommended that you've taken an LFS African Drum class or have previous experience with African or Diasporic polyrhythms. The hand drum and support parts will be taught at a relatively fast pace.
