T27 The Universal Harp

5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 1:00pm

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


As we explore the possibilities of using musical expression to create  a journey through different sound qualities, we will ask ourselves: what are the possibilities within the harp universe? Is there a limit? The class will focus on harmony and harmonic freedom, its uses and applications within Paraguayan rhythms and other genres. All kinds of harps welcome.

Tutor: Sixto and Juanjo 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.
