BODY MUSIC with Keith Terry & Evie Ladin

Ages 8+ / no experience needed.

Body Music, also known as Body Percussion and Body Drumming, is the oldest music on the planet. Before people were hollowing logs and slapping rocks, they were using their bodies to stomp, clap, sing, snap and vocalize their musical ideas. There are many traditional Body Musics in the world, from African-American Hambone and Flamenco Palmas to Sumatran Saman and Ethiopian Armpit music. BODY MUSIC is an effective way of internalizing rhythmic work, which enhances the development of time, timing, phrasing, listening skills, independence, coordination and ensemble awareness. Led by the founders of the International Body Music Festival, this accessible workshop is a fun experience for anyone interested in deepening their rhythmic skills, and playing their human instrument.

At Open Door events, nobody will be turned away because they can’t afford a ticket. If our $15 ticket tier is out of your price range, we invite you to ask for an “Open Door” ticket at the door before the show. We’ll accept a donation of any size, but none is needed or expected at an Open Door event. We will accept Open Door tickets until the show is sold out. 

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to attend arts and community events, and strive to make as many of our events Open Door events as possible.
