The Return of Cyro and Billy
Cyro Baptista and Billy Martin will host another series of exotic rhythms workshops this spring. On March 31, April 1, 7 and 8 the veteran percussionists will host both a morning and an afternoon workshop in Tenafly, NJ. Though the workshops are a bit pricy ($400 for four classes), each class promises to be informative. Baptista will discuss Brazilian culture, music and being a percussionist, while Martin will conduct a creative music workshop using various ‘exotic’ percussion instruments on-hand. The evening will end with a group jam, with the percussionists providing all the instruments necessary for the two hour session.If you are interested and want to sign up or would like more information, please email either: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
As previously reported, Martin will also release a duet album with John Medeski on April 10 titled Mago. Medeski Martin and Wood will perform at Denvers The Fillmore on April 13 and 14.
