Beta Patterns: DokoKara (R05)

Tuesdays, 8:00 - 9:45pm

First Class: Tue, September 30, 2014
Teacher(s): Yuta Kato, David Wells
Room: Small Classroom
Prerequisites: Beta Essentials

Learn DokoKara, directly from the composer! This exciting piece was originally commissioned and performed by Zenshin Daiko of Maui, graciously given to the taiko community as a "copyleft" piece your group can now use in its repertoire. Making creative use of "don" and "ka", this piece uses rhythms in a challenging and dynamic arrangement. The course teaches the full lead-nagado part, with an introduction to the jiuchi (base-beat) parts. LATIdama evaluation opportunity!

LATIdama required.

2013 DokoKara Recital at our very own Bounenkai event!
