Term 1 beginners (2018) play a “Glasgow Drum Circle original” arrangement of Kuku. All pupils learned the intro, four main patterns, the break and the “one handed solo” and demonstrate all in the video below. If you want to come along and learn how to drum please join us on Wednesday nights at Wellington Church Glasgow from 7pm-10pm. Every six weeks we learn a new rhythm!
Our beginners Term 2 (2016) at The Glasgow Drum Circle ,play their version of Djole, ” Djole’ Rodger” which we have been learning over the last few weeks, our back line is starting to get funky in all te right places.
Our new recruits are put through their paces at the GDC, playing a new rhythm learned from West Africa called Balakulandjan. Everyone has been working hard studying the notation and learning all the patterns and solos. Here in this specially adapted arrangement, is our first performance of putting it all together. I think you will agree that it’s not bad at all. – Well done everyone! ▼
Getting near the end of term two of 2015
Here we have a short performance of “Tiriba” a rhythm from Guinea. Tiriba was a great dancer who performed with percussionists.
We have been learning this rhythm over November and Tiriba features in our tuition DVD which will be available to GDC members for home study.
If you would like to learn to play this rhythm then why not pay us a visit at Wellington Church. [Glasgow Uni – Gilmore Hill]
