Duende Libre Workshop

October 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT


Duende Libre is an energetic power trio with global influences featuring longtime collaborators Alex Chadsey (piano/keyboards/compositions), Farko Dosumov (electric bass) and Jeff “Bongo” Busch (drums & percussion). Duende utilizes the American jazz tradition as a point of departure for daring explorations of rhythm & influences from the Americas, Europe and Africa yielding catchy melodies, lush harmonies, and wholehearted groove.

In this workshop we explore the rich and varied rhythmic legacy from Brazil and the Caribbean through hands-on participation, call & response, and collective jamming. In particular we look at clave and how it informs the interlocking parts which give this music its powerful groove. Participants will leave with a deeper appreciation and understanding of what clave is and how they can utilize it in their own music. All Ages & Abilities Welcome. This workshop is presented with support from The Jazz Educator’s Network (JEN).

Tickets are $10 at the door. RSVP is requested.
