Preview Drum Solo Workshop
There are many reasons why drum solos are a favorite part of Belly Dancing for me. Artistic freedom to interpret the music one on one with a live musician, the energy and excitement that comes from live vs. recorded music, the spontaneous artistic play between myself and the drummer and of course, the adulations of an appreciative, enthusiastic audience. This 58 minute DVD is a behind the scenes look at how Issa and I as a drummer/dancer team approach our roles during a drum solo. I’ll tell you how I approach putting combinations together, how I use sharp and soft combinations keep the solo interesting and what I look for from Issa. You’ll also hear from Issa as he talks about some of the different rhythms, layers and how he approaches his role as drummer and part of the team.
