An interactive, motivational percussion workshop designed to promote team-building and stress reduction while encouraging harmony and unity.
The program begins by introducing percussion instruments from around the world, including Africa, South America, Cuba, and the Caribbean. Master Percussionist Willie Stewart (formerly of the famous Third World band) explores various rhythms and their cultural evolution, from communication to celebration. We conduct interactive percussion games that turn bangs into beats, beats into rhythm, and rhythm into music. This workshop is designed to tune and energize the body physically, mentally, and spiritually.
As essential to its structure as percussion instruments, its tools include joy, laughter, and movement; lots of uplifting fun through music-making and rhythm. More intimate and focused, RIC features children and families sharing, engaging, and empowering our communities at large.
Bring a drum or other percussion instrument to join in the fun!
A limited supply of instruments will be available for use.
