Ritmo, Tierra, y Cajón, is a unique opportunity to learn traditional rhythms and techniques of the Afro Peruvian cajón while exploring ways to integrate them into our music classroom practices. Participants are guided by experienced cajón player and trained Orff Schulwerk educator, Sebastian Guerrero. Sebastian will share his intimate knowledge of the zapateo (tap dance) tradition and delve into how the cajon is an extension of that form of movement. He will offer practical applications and lots of inspiring ideas to get you and your students excited about the magical box drum from Perú!
Translated from Spanish, ritmo means rhythm and tierra means dirt or earth -- both are key elements and characters in the story of the cajón. Let’s sing, say, dance, and play while digging our feet into the earth and discover new ways to celebrate the beauty of life with each other!
All registrants will be provided a link to the live Zoom webinar as well as access to a recording of the workshop so that you can watch live or as your schedule allows.
