This course is an opportunity to play frame drums in a group like an ensemble. The focus lays on the group cycling of rhythms and the various compositions, rather than  on the technique of the hands. All different sorts of frame drums will be included in the orchestra. We will also use the frame drums in a free way, for example in a melodic and dynamic way or in percussive and polyrhythmic compositions.

3 arrangements for frame drum ensembles:

  1. TRADITIONAL BANDA: Four ritual polyrhythmic cycles: GNAWA trance, Pizzica Pizzica, Tammorriata, Bottari.
  1. EARLY MUSIC ORCHESTRA: free approaches for playing Tamburello and Tacchiolette in Cantigas de S. Maria, Follias d’Espagne, Chaconne, Pavane, Gavotte and early medieval and baroque themes and repertoires.
  1. MODERN BEAT CREW: the composition that will be created by the group under Paolo's supervision.
Language of instruction:


Level: Experience in frame drum playing (in one of the instruments stated above )
