Rhythm is undoubtedly a big part of our lives. From the moment we are born, our heart beats and we are synchronised with something rhythmical that accompanies us until the “end”. In our workshop we will be studying rhythm extensively through a different approach, the polyrhythmic one; in other words the existence of two or more rhythms at the same time. During the lessons we will be taught various ways of approaching rhythm, through the techniques of Karnatic Music (Classical music of South India) and how to correctly execute and create polyrhythms using our voices (Konnakol method). At the same time we will learn how to develop polyrhythms and how to understand and perform complicated rhythmical structures. To summarise, the workshop introduces the participants to the meaning of polyrhythms by suggesting methods of improving the feeling of pulse. Ultimately, we will transfer the polyrhythms we learned to our musical instruments and we will create a composition which will include the rhythmical matters we have covered along with more elements from Carnatic music (Ragas - Scales, Tala - Meter, Form, etc). The piece will be presented in a concert at the Music Village.
