The calabash is a highly recommended instrument, not only for those who are taking their first steps into the world of percussion but also for already well trained percussionists or drummers who want to discover a new percussion instrument. The calabash is a low cost instrument and can easily be ordered. Our teacher Octave Komlan will put a couple of Calabashes at the students ‘disposal.
The course will make the students familiar with an at first sight rather simple instrument. The great amount of technique and the endless number of sounds and rhythms that can be produced while playing the calabash will be demonstrated and practiced. There will also be several occasions on which the students will be able to play with students studying other West-African instruments at Muziekpublique.
The teacher is Togolese percussionist Octave Komlan.
