Easier Teamwork says
Led by Mary Tolena, this workshop is part of the amazing, FREE 23rd Annual Seattle World Rhythm Festival! Drum, dance, listen & learn at over 100 world music performances, and drum & dance workshops. Full schedule at

4th Floor, Room C

In a drum circle or ensemble, the low-pitched bass drums (dununs, surdos, etc.) create the backbone of the rhythm — the sonic pattern that other players orient to. Learn the secrets of juicy, melodic bass lines that are fun to play, and add depth and interest to the music. Though the techniques are pretty simple, it takes a special orientation and sensibility to bring out the full potential of playing the bass! Some bass drums will be provided. Other drums can also be used as good substitutes.
