Come and learn to play Cumbia Bullerengue on the drums – and more – and to sing and dance the Afro-Colombian rhythm mixing resistance and tradition.
La Comba Women Drummers Collective invites UVW members to join them for a FREE* workshop on Colombian drumming and dance.
✊🏽 Get empowered! Fight patriarchy, sexist, racist and class structures to the tune of Colombia’s Afro-Caribbean culture and music ✊🏽
📅 WEEKLY SESSIONS: Every Thursday from 15 February onwards ⏰ 7pm – 9pm
📅 MONTHLY SESSIONS: The last Friday of every month from 23 February onwards ⏰ 7pm – 9pm
🏠 Casa UVW, 144 Cambridge Heath Road, London E1 5QJ
🪘 There is a limited number of drums available, so please bring your own if you have one
While the workshops aim to particularly empower women to fight patriarchy through embracing traditional folklore, this is an inclusive activity. It is open to UVW members and non members – from children to seniors of all genders and fellow travellers in our fight for equality.
Tatiana Margarita Roa, Tay Tambo, a UVW member and veteran percussionist from La Comba, will be running the sessions. Get in touch with her here for more info >> Lacombauk@gmail.com
Come to learn, share and create community.
*Non-UVW members will be asked for a voluntary contribution if they bring their own drums and a £5 donation if they need to rent drums.
12pm – 2pm
6pm – 11pm
