T17 Trad, reharmonisation, modernisation of Paraguyan music

5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 9:00am

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


Enjoy the freedom to play traditional music but from a current perspective. The class will offer students rhythmic and harmonic resources within a quick brushstroke of improvisation using different Paraguayan rhythms. All kinds of harps welcome.

Tutor: Sixto Corbalan - Sixto and his brother Juanjo have performed together since 2007. They maintain their special focus on the Paraguayan harp and continue to pioneer new composition and performance techniques. The combination of varying musical influences results in a surprising and colourful fusion of harmonies and rhythms, with a heart- and ear-catching sound still deeply rooted in their own musical heritage.
