David Ambrosio    David is currently running cultural tours to Havana, Cuba a few times a year with master drummer, musician and long time friend and teacher Miguel Bernal. They will include daily workshops and activities centered around the amazing folkloric music and beautiful culture of this amazing place. For the student of folkloric drumming and the Afro Cuban Bata drumming this program is ideal, but would also be beneficial for anyone who has an interest in learning more about this incredible place or just wants to expand their horizons. The tours and workshops are open to all regardless of musical experience.

   Learning the music of the Bata drums offers any musician not only the obvious expansion of their rhythmic vocabulary but also insight into musical structures, phrasing, improvisation and ensemble interaction. The musical expression and flexibility involved in this music is very akin to Jazz and would be invaluable to any Jazz student as it is truly one of the roots of the African influence in our native American music.

The next tour to Havana is happening Aug 6th - Aug 20th 2018, and there is flexibility within this time frame. These tours are available at the very affordable rate of $150 per day. This rate includes centrally located accommodation, two meals a day, and classes. It does not include airfare, local transport and any additional activities.
