The Second Line refers to the drum and percussion section of a procession typically following a funeral procession in celebration of a persons life. This tradition was taken to New Orleans during the African Diaspora and as a result has mixed characteristics of a European style march mixed with West African polyrhythms.
These processions are usually made up of a mixture of drums and percussion as part of a brass band. These days, all sorts of rhythms are incorporated whilst still keeping a swinging, funky style.
During this workshop we will utilise a range of instruments including Djembes, Congas, Snare, Bass drums and bells. Expect BIG Beats, BIG Breaks & BIG Smiles!
This workshop is accessible and open to all!
