The Latin Harp – Diego Laverne Rojas

April 1@11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The workshop will focus on analysing rhythmical structures which are in most of the traditional songs played in a geographical area between Colombia and Venezuela, where they share the same musical heritage. Concepts like: Corrio, Seis Por Derecho, Tonada, Gavan, and many others, will be explained. Participants also will see how different harmonic progressions are built and will have the chance to understand these concepts with basic exercises on their own harps.

You are welcome to bring your harp with you to this workshop. People without harps during the workshop will be extremely welcome too.

Supported by: The Clarsach Society London branch.
