Workshop Yuri Landman

Quickstep Kalimba

FR 20.05 2011 — 18:30-22:30

The Quickstep Kalimba Workshop features an electric version of an African instrument called Kalimba. This electric variant is handy to plug in any amp and to use at live performances. The tuning is adapted to the 12 tone common in Western music, but can be adapted to the traditional tunings as well if desired.

The Quickstep Kalimba is based on the electric kalimbas built by Konono No.1 from Democratic Republic of the Congo and the kalimbas of the band Neptune from Boston.

Subscription: Each workshop is limited to 16 persons.
Price (materials included): € 110
Duration of the workshop is approximately four hours.
