    A journey around the world through rhythm and cello

    In collaboration with

    Rebetiko Carnival


    Pavlos Carvalho, cello & bouzouki
    Alice Jones & Sheida Davis, cellos
    Kostas Kopanaris, percussion
    Anna Cooper, accordion/piano

    Join us in a celebration of dances around the world through time, rhythm and the cello. Open to Grade 1-5 levels.

    We will have fun exploring rhythms from classical music and relating them to different dances around the world, for example the Argentinian tango, Cuban bolero, American blues, Greek and Balkan rhythms. We will also get the opportunity to learn more challenging rhythms and even try dancing some of them!

    The day will end with a short informal concert.

    The London Cello Society thanks Rebetiko Carnival for their generous support of this event.
