Artist: Tony Mascara

World Percussionist

World Drum Workshop
Program Description: Tony brings audiences an interactive show highlighting the many styles of drums and rhythms from around the globe. Participants will be given a brief history on how certain drums are made, their original purpose and reason for being created, and where the drums have migrated to in our musical world today. After each drum is demonstrated, a volunteer will play with the group while the rest of the participants will be lead to clap new rhythms, using dynamics and accents. The goal of these sessions is to make sure that everyone works together to create a percussion jam session that eventually winds down into quiet rhythms that fades to silence. A question and answer session is conducted at the end of each session.
