Latin & English Caribbean Music & Percussion Workshops (20 to 50 min’s)

It’s a fun educational view of Latin music, Rhythm, & dance, with lots of hands on class involvement. Every one leaves exercised & with a smile.

Duo consists of trumpet/trombone & keyboards/ vocals. (Percussion instruments: steel timbale drums, clave, guiro, maracas, bell & congas)
PA (battery powered) & props supplied by Fiesta Tropicale, so workshops can be anywhere, even outdoors under the trees.

We prefer the Trio including Dancer for extra dance workshops.
