Todd Roach (USA)

Todd Roach is a very experienced frame drum teacher and musician from the USA. We are glad to present him at Tamburi Mundi festival with his special and personal excercises and ideas.

Instruments: Large Frame Drum, Tar, Mizhar, Riqq, ...
Content: This course will focus on rhythmic development.  Participants will be exposed to exercises and material aimed specifically at developing an internal metronome. Using frame drums, voice and feet, we will play layered patterns as a way of building our capacity to track rhythm and to increase our understanding of advanced material. Our work will include incorporating solkattu, odd time signatures and some advanced techniques into our playing with the goal of expanding our sense of time, phrasing and musical connection
Language of instruction:


Level: Medium = Good precognition and a solid experience in frame drum playing. Beating techniques and a good rhythmical practise should be existing.


Please note:
