Afro-Caribbean Drumming Workshop

Zimmerman Recital Hall

This workshop will introduce students to Afro-Caribbean drumming techniques. Participants will exercise hand-striking techniques to replicate the sound ranges of panderos and barriles de bomba. These drumming principles will be applied to rhythmic patterns in various Afro-Puerto Rican bomba and plena musical styles.

Hugo R. Viera-Vargas holds a Ph.D. in Latin American History from Indiana University in Bloomington and is currently an Assistant Professor of Caribbean and Latin American Studies and Music at New College of Florida.

This event is part of LVC’s Latina Heritage Celebration.
