Intro to Indian Vocal Percussion ONLINE w/Jim Santi Owen

Learn the basics and beauty of the rhythms of India from the comfort
of your own home! Join percussionist Jim Santi Owen on a journey
through the folk and classical rhythms of India, exploring the poetry of
the tabla and pakhawaj, the calculations of the mridangam and kanjira,
and the grooves of the dhol and dhak. No experience needed. No drums
needed. Just a voice to recite and hands to clap. Great for kids, teens,
and adults alike and tailored to gently guide the absolute beginner as
well as challenge the seasoned professional musician. Santi Owen has
been teaching online for 10+years, so you’ll be in good hands!
