5/11[大師工作坊(一):南印度節奏系統] by Poovalur Sriji !
***Inviting all interested musicians! A rare opportunity for Taipei!
『南印度節奏系統』是世界上公認發展最精密的節奏運算法，許多世界知名的演奏家，如：John McLaughlin, John Coltrane, Charles Lloyd, and George Harrison (the Beatles)...等等, 在音樂生涯中後期皆深深的被印度音樂影響及結合，也有越來越多的音樂人漸漸發現此音樂系統的重要性。
***South Indian music is generally considered to have the most highly-developed rhythmic system in the world. The possibilities are endless for application of this approach to other kinds of music. World-renowned artists such as John McLaughlin, John Coltrane, Charles Lloyd, and George Harrison all realized the sophistication of Indian music.
This workshop is a window into the fascinating rhythms of Indian music!
***The "Takadimi" system will make you look at rhythm in a whole new way. It will offer a fresh perspective for drummers, improvisors, and composers of any genre.
***In association with World Press Photo, we are thrilled to bring Poovalur Sriji - master Indian drummer, composer, and educator (bio below) to Taiwan.
