Bodypercussion/Voice Workshop with Lilian Zamorano 

Ju Cassou TrioThe most complex instrument is the human body. From singing to clapping or stomping from snapping the fingers to beating on the chest, legs and arms, we can create an incredible diversity of sounds, melodies and rhythms.

The percussionist Gilson de Assis and the singer Lilian Zamorano show how to do this in the workshop.

Apart of a big repertoire in brazilian popular and modern music, the musicians work with rhythms and melodies from the pop and jazz music. The goal is, no matter if beginner or professional, to discover the fascinating world of the voice combined with the rhythms and sounds of our body.
