Workshop: Nihiloxicas drum and dance

Insomnia has a touch of African acts and rythms this year, and Nihiloxica is one of them. Intrigued by both the origins of these rhythms and the techniques required to perform them, there was nothing else to do than invite them to host a workshop for us. Nihiloxica are going to show us the essence of what they do musically and demonstrate how to get down and dance to it Ugandan style. They'll be taking us on a cultural journey from Buganda through all the kingdoms from which they draw their rhythms.

Activities will include:

  • Learning traditional rhythms through both drumming and dancing.
  • Playing on a Bugandan drum set.
  • Learning techniques of playing hand percussion instruments.
  • Q&A and traditional performance from the band.

This workshop is open to all and free of charge. Please sign up here.

This workshop is presented as part of SHAPE Platform.
