The workshop presents rhythm cells and their interactions according to the Afro-Latin framework uncovered by the facilitator. After trying out rhythm segments through clapping, singing, drumming, or using free drum-machine software, participants record their preferences on a worksheet, and receive an MP3 based on their construction in one of several styles (Brazilian, Haitian, funk, Middle Eastern, etc.).
