Holder of a national diploma for percussion teachers,
Arnold Moueza offers classes andMaster Classes based on his method "Bata Rhythms on Congas Part 1".
As one of the few people able to play the entire ORU SECO on 3 congas, Arnold masters toques such as:the continuation of Obatala, the continuation of Yemaya, the continuation
of Ochosi, the “Meta” of Chango, Bayuba etc.
His transcriptions includeall theconversations in these rhythms.
Based primarily on the concept of hand independence, the technique requires full mastery. The aim is to achieve fluidity of movement, regardless of the degree of complexity.
Coordination, control, synchronisation, concentration, technique, hand
independence are all essential components that "BATA RHYTHMS ON CONGAS PART
1" helps to develop, making it an efficient andcomplementary
tool enabling all serious percussionists to improvein those areas of their playing.
But it is also a formidable learning methodfor those who want a different approach tostudying the congas, albeit one that demands a high level of discipline.
