Bata Drumming: The Instruments, the Rhythms, and the People Who Play Them

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Bat Drumming: the Instruments, the Rhythms, and the People Who Play Them is the most comprehensive study of this important Cuban musical tradition, and the first to explore the people who created it, how it developed in Cuba, and where it fits in relation to the other folkloric traditions on the island. Who were the slaves brought to Cuba? What belief systems did they carry with them? How did the various Afro-Cuban religions grow from these systems? What types of music evolved from these religions? What is Santeria, and how do the bat drums function within it? Part One answers these questions.Part Two examines the history of the drums: how they are taught, learned, and played, explaining their role in the ceremony and the structure of the music. These discussions incorporate the latest scholarship as well as the ideas and concepts of respected Cuban and North American bat drummers, resulting in a more complete study of the tradition as it is practiced today.The center piece of Bat Drumming is the Oru Seco, a set of playable, musical transcriptions of twenty-tworhythms dedicated to the Santeria gods. This transcription set accurately notates the rhythms of the PapoAngarica performance style, which is very influential in Havana-style drumming.Bat Drumming is the first book not only to notate the rhythms, but to connect them to the people whopreserved and recreated them, "in the unrelenting face of displacement and oppression."
