Explore a New Skill at This Drum Workshop Held by Percussionist, Hector Morales
Celebrate the Full Moon with a drum circle in Flushing Town Hall's garden with master drummers from Perú. Begin with a workshop led by percussionist Hector Morales who will demonstrate various Afro-Peruvian rhythms on cajon, cajita and quijade, then jam with the entire group under the full moon.
The Afro-Peruvian Ensemble, led by Morales, makes every performance an unforgettable live experience. It celebrates a unique heritage and gets everyone up on their feet and in love with this music!
The ensemble's repertoire includes uplifting festejos and zamacuecas, dazzling Peruvian waltzes and sensual landos, as well as the "contrapunto de cajones" (box drums solos) and "contrapunto de Zapateo" (tap dancing competition), classics of the Afro-Peruvian folklore rarely seen in the United States.
All skill levels are welcome, from beginner to professional – just bring your enthusiasm!
