Fantasia 2014

In this practical workshop inspired by Flamenco technique, see how your feet and hands combine to make sounds and create music. Learn how to 'bodily' play Oriental rhythms such as:
4/4 Saidi;
8/4 Masmudi;
and Samai, a refined 10-beat rhythm which belongs to the classical music repertoire. Samai rhythm is strongly related to Muwashah, a strophic song originated in Al-Andalus (Medieval Moorish Iberian peninsula).
Stick or cane is required to deepen this percussive practice and, as a group, perform call and answer exercises.
