Quitiplas in the Pocket – Naname creativity with Polymeter

ASANO TAIKO U.S., Inc. 20909 S Western Ave, Torrance, CA, United States

“Quitiplas in the Pocket” is a solo improvisation piece on the Naname (slant style) drums created by ManMan. It has interlocking polymeter base-beats, adapted from the Venezuelan Quitiplas music. Participants will be learning the polymeter base beat with body percussion, which provides a new listening and playing experience. ManMan’s approach creates new pathways that deviate from the classical music approach, as the body percussion exercise help participants to internalize the music and playing with a groove.
