“Rhythm and We”
Music and Drums Interactive Performance by Petr Glavatskyh


In fact, rhythm is a synonym for life! Everything is ruled by logic: from the movement of the planets to the pace of seconds. Percussion instruments are designed to bring this logic in the music of our planet.

What is it, this mysterious rhythm? What are its main and first transmitters? Why did African and Latin American specialists in the history of ethnic music have a quarrel? To what rhythm did “the aborigines eat Cook”? What novelties did the ancient Persians discover in Babylon? How did Mali conduct its musical expansion on the African continent, and how did the Mayans play with four sticks?

You may learn about all these fascinating things and much more from the “rhythmic sketches” by Peter Glavatskyh. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and find out what it is like to be a percussion player today mastering one of the first musical professions ever.
