The Carnival Band’s weekly rehearsals are held at the seniors’ lounge across from the library at Britannia Community Centre. The address is 1661 Napier Street in Vancouver. We meet every Monday evening from 7:30 to 10. Bring just about any instrument you can carry, or slap on your dancing shoes, and get ready for a good time. No auditions. All are welcome.
Here are a couple of clipa of The Carnival Band playing Bella Ciao at the March Against Monsanto
- Kesseke tells us the story of the djembe
- Kesseke couple basic West Afica drum patterns and breaks
- We all pick up our horn’s(if you’re a horn play) and work one of Kesseke’s beats on to one of our pieces: possible tunes are Afro Blue, Scrachy Poco, Swayze the Cat
