In this workshop, curious kids, teenagers and adults alike embark on a sound expedition around the world, from the Caribbean to India and beyond. Music is played everywhere and it always sounds different.
And because trying out is known to be more fun than mere listening, all featured percussion instruments that have travelled here from lands far away may be played by participants – under the guidance of professionals, of course. Previous knowledge is welcome, but not a requirement. After all, it’s about the rhythm played by all participants together developed along the journey, step by step, stroke by stroke.

Duration: 90 minutes
Venue: Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

Supported by the Stiftung Elbphilharmonie with funding from the Körber Foundation’s »ZukunftsMusik«
