5-Days Intensive Cajón Flamenco Rhythm Workshop
2nd – 6th September 2019
Highly recommend for anyone who would like to understand more about compás….
During this workshop, students will work on a different palo every day and focus on technique and rhythm exercises to improve the pulse. On the last day, everyone will play all the palos that were taught during the workshop – accompanied by a professional Flamenco guitarist. Playing alongside a guitarist will be particularly important in understanding how the rhythms work with the guitar.
