Kefaya will lead an interactive lecture/demonstration, discussing the key melodic, harmonic and rhythmic characteristics of different forms of music, including Jazz, African, Flamenco, Cuban, Indian classical, Reggae and Italian folk music. The workshop will also focus on different approaches to improvisation within different styles, on group interaction and on the ways different styles of music can be successfully fused together.

The band will perform compositions inspired by many music traditions and analyse them with the students to show the roles of different instruments and the different ways to approach interaction between instruments in relation to cultural traditions.
