The harp is the instrument along with the “cuatro” and “maracas” that maintains the strong musical tradition between Colombia and Venezuela, through the “Joropo,” characteristically in 3/4 or 6/8. In addition, during the course, Diego will introduce the 4/4 rhythms of repertoire from other parts of Colombia (Cumbia!!) where the harp it is less well known. We will explore further variations particularly for the left hand, as well as more elements of improvisation.
Initially teaching will be by ear. Written music will be provided.
