Flamenco Palmas & Rhythm Workshop w/ Lindsey Bourassa

MONDAY, MAR 13 — 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Explore the art of flamenco palmas, the beautiful rhythmic clapping that is inherent to flamenco.

In this first palmas workshop, attendees will look at the proper palmas technique to learn how to create quality sounds, how palmas are used in flamenco and the many different time signatures and polyrhythms that exist.

We will then focus on the style of Tangos Flamencos as a first entry point to practice our palmas in context. In tandem, we will also learn relevant theory about the history, culture and language of flamenco.

No experience is needed. All ages and abilities are welcome!
