Circavision Productions Presents the new book:

A World of Percussion: Ten études inspired by rhythms from across the globe

Available October 1st, 2013

The book, and accompanying CD, encourage its participants to explore sound and rhythm through various percussion instruments and their bodies, while learning about rhythms from around the world.

It includes ten colorful percussion études based on influential rhythms from: Ghana, Guinea, Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Spain, and the United States and offers a context in which to understand cultural diversity with an eye towards global fluency.

A World of Percussion is designed for general music classes (ages 10+), and uses a box notation system that anyone can follow.

As participants travel around the world, filling in their rhythmic passport, they absorb a taste of each drumming tradition.

Percussion disciplines include: playing with hands, sticks, brushes, mallets, as well as vocal, body, and pitched keyboard percussion.
