Learning the old rhythms of Cuba

Students of all ages got a salute on the steps of City Hall for their work learning the rhythms of Cuba yesterday.

Percussion professor Eddie Ming has trained 25 students of ages ranging from 5 to 82 in preparation for his second cultural and musical exchange to Cuba, set for July 2018.

Mr Ming commended them for hard work at two camps over the summer on “the old rhythms of Cuba”, ranging from funk to Afro-Cuban beats.

“Every day is a learning day,” Mr Ming added.

“The Rhythm Lab is about building not just a foundation, but a road for our students to go somewhere new.

“I'm very happy with their accomplishments — the Cuban professors in the exchange will be very impressed and surprised at the level Bermuda's students have reached.”
