The event creator says
This 60 minute workshop focuses on the fundamental rhythmic differences between European classical and American vernacular forms, using the rich historical connection to the traditional string quartet as the point of departure for a musical journey that begins with Mozart and ends with Turtle Island!

Turtle Island identifies the 'back-beat' as the key, unveiling it in its various stylistic guises with the help of the audience, and then the quartet embarks on a simple and methodical layering of the basic building blocks employed in creating a jazz string combo. Also touched upon are bowing techniques borrowed from American fiddle styles, 60's rock ala Jimi Hendrix, R&B ala Tower Of Power, clave rhythms of Latin American music, and Carnatic Indian tabla grooves. Throughout all, the back-beat rules.
