Ubaka Hill - Friday - Live@5

Tune in to The Homestretch Friday for a live performance and interview with Ubaka Hill.

Ubaka is an internationally-know percussionist, singer, poet and teacher. She will lead three weekend drumming workshops and perform in concert Saturday night. All events take place at Anjali at 330 E. 7th St., just west of 4th Avenue. The concert happens at 7:30 pm Saturday night and local drumming groups Odaiko Sonora and Batucaxe will open the show! Bring your dancing feet! Tickets to the concert are $12 in advance (at Antigone Books) or $15 at the door.


The workshops are as follows:
Friday, Oct. 27th 7-10 pm Drumsong I $35
Perfect for the beginning drummer or those wanting to freshen up their skills. This workshops will cover drum vocabulary, basic rhythm, technique and group playing.

Saturday, Oct. 28th 10am-3pm Drumsong II--$70
Drumsong II builds on the skills taught in Drumsong I, but you do NOT need to attend Friday night to attend Saturday. Ubaka will teach 2-3 of her orginal compositions, and those interested can perform with her in concert Saturday night as the Tucson Drumsong Orchestra.

Sunday, Oct. 29th 11am-4pm Beyond the Edge WOMEN ONLY-- $70
This workshop focuses on drumming, rhythm, and sound as a healing modality. Ubaka will draw on the energy of the Ancient Mother, the Giver of Life in a powerful women-only space. We will explore the healing qualities of sound through chants, drumming, and songs.
